Fireside Chat: Young Professionals in Australia and Japan

The Australia-Japan Youth Dialogue attracts a wide variety of delegates from diverse backgrounds for our biennial Dialogues. These young people have played pivotal roles in furthering the bilateral relationship between Australia and Japan, from managing cross-country start-ups and interpreting at the Paralympic Games, to starring in feature films, advising countries working across borders and creating fascinating artworks inspired by our close relationships.

Come join us for a casual fireside chat with our alumni, where you will have the opportunity to talk to them about their experiences and how they got involved in the bilateral relationship. You will hear about their biggest achievements, what they wish they had done differently, and what advice they would give to the next generation. Find out how you might be able to get involved in the Australia-Japan relationship!
