20th December 2023

Our delegates for the 2024 Australia-ASEAN Emerging Leaders Program (A2ELP) have been announced this week, with 5 Australian participants and 1 participant from each ASEAN country being selected from a pool of over 250 applications.

We are proud to announce the 15 delegates and introduce them to you below. They will be participating in a 3 month program, running both online and in-person, to coincide with the 50th Anniversary Australia-ASEAN Summit in March 2024.

Leaders amongst their country’s young entrepreneurs, the following social entrepreneurs span social enterprises around mental health, professional services, education, science, writing and publishing, health and wellbeing, music, games and more.

The program will run from January 2024 to April 2024, and provide 15 social entrepreneurs the opportunity to elevate their professional and leadership skills. In early March, delegates will come together in Australia for a week long professional and cultural immersion experience.

A2ELP is run by the Australian social enterprise Social Good Outpost. Alumni from the program are changemakers from across the region, making an impact across diverse sectors including mental health care, agriculture, indigenous communities, education, technology and fashion.

A2ELP is a flagship program of the Australia-ASEAN Council, funded by Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
