AIYA Chapters run various kinds of events to connect, inform and inspire young Australians and Indonesians. We enable the sharing of language and cultural experiences through networking and language exchanges and other educational and cultural events. Events range from debate nights and guest speaker events where you’ll likely learn something new on topical issues facing both countries, to movie screenings and trivia nights focused on Australian and Indonesian history and culture.
AIYA also seeks to incubate innovative and wide-reaching initiatives that strive to enhance the Australia-Indonesia relationship amongst young people. For example, in 2015, Sally Hill founded the National Australia Indonesia Language Awards, the flagship initiative of AIYA that rewards and fosters the development of Indonesian language learning in Australia at all levels.`
