Generation Asia Research Reports
With over 60 per cent of the world’s youth living in the Asia Pacific, fostering connectivity between young Australians and their peers across Asia, and cultivating Asia capabilities in our next-gen leaders, is crucial to ensuring Australia’s future success in the region.
Asia Society Australia and the International Education Association of Australia (IEAA) present a new research collaboration, mapping the challenges facing Asia-engaged young Australians in the pandemic era and exploring youth-focused solutions for a successful Asia-adjacent future.
Supported by the Victorian Government, Asia Society Australia and IEAA will deliver three reports, 'Keeping Connected', 'Asia Literacy and Employability', and 'Championing our Talent'. The project is a major component of Asia Society Australia’s Generation Asia pillar of work.
