The Conference of Australian and Indonesian Youth (CAUSINDY) is excited to announce a new partnership with telkomtelstra and Telstra to support CAUSINDY 2016. telkomtelstra and Telstra will be supporting through a new program called ‘Engaging Future Leaders’ that connects university students across both countries.

It’s not every day that 30 of the brightest young leaders from Australia and Indonesia come together, and this is why CAUSINDY has decided to bring high school and university students to interact with former CAUSINDY delegates across Australia and Indonesia.

Karina Akib, co-founder of CAUSINDY saidthrough our new program, ‘Engaging Future Leaders by CAUSINDY’ anyone with an internet connection can access alumni profiles and watch a special ‘Bilateral Debate’ event.” She added “we want to make it easy for anyone to learn how former CAUSINDY delegates have accelerated their careers through engagement in the bilateral relationship”. Delegates will also have the opportunity to learn more about the contemporary bilateral relationship.


The debating societies of University of Indonesia and the University of Sydney have been selected to be to be a part of the inaugural ‘Bilateral Debate’. Each team is mentored by former CAUSINDY delegates. The debate will take place live via video link between telkomtelstra’s offices in Jakarta and Telstra’s offices in Sydney on September 3rd, prior to the 2016 CAUSINDY conference in Bali. The session will be available on our website after the debate for teachers, students to use as material to learn more about the bilateral relationship.

Karina Akib said “telkomtelstra is a great example of how real collaboration between our countries can result in successful business ventures. For CAUSINDY using Telstra’s technology to connect the brightest university students from Sydney and Jakarta, we hope to expand the influence of CAUSINDY and inspire students everywhere to be part of the bilateral relationship.”  

President Director of telkomtelstra Erik Meijer said, “Telstra and telkomtelstra are incredibly excited to support CAUSINDY 2016. “CAUSINDY brings together the best minds and innovative thinkers in Australia and Indonesia with the aim of growing and strengthening bilateral relationships. We are incredibly optimistic about the opportunities that exist for individuals, businesses as well as at the government level and are proud to be a part of this initiative.”

telkomtelstra and Telstra will be involved in other parts of the program through a panel “Searching for Growth: The new economy” featuring Jamie Camidge, Head of Strategic Partnerships and Alliances, from Telstra’s accelerator muru-D and a special event in Jakarta with Erik Meijer, President Director of telkomtelstra.

CAUSINDY welcomes telkomtelstra and Telstra to Bali in 2016, and looks forward to working with them across a number of events in the lead up to and during the conference.
