The seventh chapter of the Australia India Youth Dialogue is set to kick off in 2018 focusing on the theme of how digital disruption is transforming democracy. As many as 30 delegates from Australia and India will converge in a four-day event to discuss, debate, ideate and collaborate on how digital disruption is shaping our democracy, media and the future of the workplace.
An annual dialogue between Australia and India, the AIYD aims to provide a sustainable platform for young leaders from Australia and India to collaborate and build strong connections between the two countries. The dialogue theme and dates of the upcoming chapter were announced at the launch event in New Delhi on 20 July.
As the AIYD turns seven, it boasts an impressive alumni group representing some of the most accomplished and influential emerging young leaders from the two countries.
“Each year the AIYD brings together young Australian and Indian leaders – CEOs, Members of Parliament, journalists, policy-makers and athletes to discuss opportunities and challenges significant to the Australia-India relationship,” said Karan Anand, Chair, Australia India Youth Dialogue.
“The platform enables a rich exchange of ideas between our emerging leaders, encouraging participants to think creatively about how the Australia-India relationship may be strengthened through their own work and efforts”, he added.
