CAUSINDY 2016 welcomes The Conversation as Media Partner


CAUSINDY is delighted to announce that The Conversation has joined the Conference as Media Partner. This new partnership will see The Conversation commission a number of CAUSINDY participants engaged in academic research to contribute a number of articles based on activities during the Conference to be published on The Conversation. We’re excited to be working with The Conversation to bring new thinking concerning the bilateral relationship between Australia and Indonesia to a wider audience.

ACICIS partners with CAUSINDY


CAUSINDY is delighted to welcome back the Australian Consortium for In-Country Indonesian Studies (ACICIS) as a partner of the conference. ACICIS is a non-profit national education consortium charged with developing and co-ordinating high quality, semester-long and short course study programs for Australian students at Indonesian partner universities. Since its foundation in 1994, ACICIS has sent over 2,000 participants to universities around Indonesia, prior to which almost no Australian students had undertaken semester long study in Indonesia for credit at their own institution in Australia. A number of ACICIS alumni have gone on to become CAUSINDY delegates, and we look forward to working together again in 2016 to further bilateral engagement.

CAUSINDY supporting ‘Diamonds in the Rough’ in Jakarta

CAUSINDY is thrilled to support Paul Meade’s (delegate 2015) ‘Diamonds in the Rough’ program.  Diamonds in the Rough is an an empowerment and engagement program for Indonesian girls, made possible by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and in conjunction with Baseball Australia, the NoMore organisation and CAUSINDY.

As part of this fantastic initiative we would like to extend an invitation to you to attend one or all of our special events to be held in Jakarta during our week long program (21-29 May 2016).

The Emeralds squad members will take on the DKI men’s team on “a level playing field.” Mr Charlie King, founder of the No More program will provide insight into raising awareness of domestic violence issues, and the players and crowd will be invited to symbolically link arms to say “No More” to domestic violence.

The program will celebrate its final day with an exhibition game against a local men’s baseball team, a carnival/clinic for Indonesian girls aged 10-14 and a final party. The clinic will run from 8am-10am, followed by the exhibition game and then the lunch/party celebration.

We hope to see you there!

CAUSINDY, is thrilled to welcome the Northern Territory Government back as a major sponsor for 2016.

CAUSINDY 2016 proves to be the biggest, and most exciting yet with new speakers, new delegates and a new location. This wouldn’t be possible without the generous support from the Northern Territory Government – and the CAUSINDY team thanks the Government, and congratulates them on the continued success of their Asian engagement strategy.

In 2016 CAUSINDY is going to Bali, and the theme will be ‘sustaining the relationship.Advancing the contemporary Australia-Indonesia relationship requires working beyond politics and traditional concepts and tapping into new areas of cooperation. CAUSINDY will explore how the two countries can cultivate stronger links between our people, private sectors, creative industries, civil societies and media.

This follows CAUSINDY 2015, which was held in Darwin. Darwin provided an incredible and unique experience for delegates, speakers and the CAUSINDY organising team. It was an experience no one will be forgetting soon.


CAUSINDY returns in 2016

The CAUSINDY team are excited to announce that the conference will return to Indonesia in 2016, at an exciting location to be announced.

Once again, this year’s conference will bring together 30 young leaders from Australia and Indonesia to discuss the big issues in the bilateral relationship with high profile speakers in business, government and academia.

We are looking forward to building on the success and experience of our past conferences in Canberra, Jakarta and Darwin. To find out how you can take part, join our mailing list below, or follow us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
