Project description

CAUSINDY, originally the Conference of Australian and Indonesian Youth, is a bilateral youth organisation which provides a platform for young leaders to create a stronger bilateral relationship. CAUSINDY is led by a volunteer team spread across both Australia and Indonesia.

Its flagship event is the annual Conference of Australian and Indonesian Youth, a four-day program which brings together 30 young leaders from Australia and Indonesia. Past delegates have included emerging leaders from a range of fields, from sitting members of parliament to leaders in business, academia and social enterprise.

CAUSINDY also coordinates an extensive network of alumni, produces a fortnightly bilingual podcast on events in the bilateral relationship, and provides resources for school and university teachers to highlight opportunities in both countries.

CAUSINDY was founded in 2012 by Bede Moore, Karina Akib and Chris Urbanski
