Australia-ASEAN Emerging Leaders Program (A2ELP)

Announced in 2016, the Australia-ASEAN Emerging Leaders Program (A2ELP) is a three month program that brings together social entrepreneurs from Australia and ASEAN member nations.

A2ELP is designed to:

  • enhance the leadership potential of participants
  • strengthen and expand people-to-people, professional, and institutional networks between Australia and Southeast Asia
  • showcase contemporary Australian and Southeast Asian creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship.

The program also aims to highlight Australian and Southeast Asian creativity and innovation in social impact and demonstrate the role of business in driving social change.

As the ASEAN Economic Community develops momentum in the years ahead, this sector is widely identified by many experts as a way to contribute to rapidly evolving economic changes.

A2ELP has been delivered by Asialink at the University of Melbourne.
