Group Activity


The Task

This task is designed to encourage you to identify opportunities for collaboration within the Australia-Japan relationship. We have allocated each of you into a small group with a specific domain area. We would like you to come up with a specific project in your domain area which helps promote stronger Australia-Japan relations and deeper people-to-people linkages.

1. Put together a brief written outline of your project (1-2 pages). This will be available to the AJYD network, including sponsors, partners, and alumni. 2. Prepare a 10-minute presentation outlining your project. There will also be time for Q&A at the end.

For each of the tasks above, we would like each team to:

  1. Provide a concise background on your domain area, including any relevant information, case studies, examples, policies, or statistics.
  2. Create a shortlist of opportunities for collaboration between Australia and Japan within this area.
  3. Select one particular opportunity for your group to focus on, and identify the most appropriate stakeholder to pitch this idea to (e.g. Australian or Japanese government, non-government organisation, think-tank, institution, or group).
  4. If possible, please outline any ideas for implementation. What might need to happen first before implementation (e.g. barriers or new funding sources)?

In doing this, we encourage you to take on a multidisciplinary perspective by talking to others in the delegate cohort who may have experience and ideas in your area or similar areas.
