Dynamic Digital Citizenship: Young Social Entrepreneurs in ASEAN and Australia
Sector: Economic Diplomacy, Trade, Business
Country location: Australia, Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam
Grantee: Griffith University
This project brings together young online social entrepreneurs from the ASEAN community and Australia for dialogue on promoting social development through the use of digital technologies and the ASEAN regional platform. Social entrepreneurship, understood as the creation of self-sustaining businesses and non-governmental organisations with a strong social purpose, has expanded dramatically in the ASEAN region in recent years, as well as in Australia. The latest wave of young social entrepreneurs (ages 18-35) has increasingly taken advantage of online technologies to pursue their social aims – including across national boundaries in ASEAN. This project will bring together established or emerging such entrepreneurs from eight ASEAN member countries, as well as five young social entrepreneurs from Queensland, for a two-day workshop in Brisbane during 12-18 March 2018. This will be timed to take advantage of the opportunities for further networking and knowledge transfer provided by the ASEAN-Australia Special Summit.
Workshop, Griffith South Bank Campus, 12-13 March 2018
