I love the program and the team, keep doing your good work! I had fun and met new friends. It was also a good opportunity to reflect on myself. Australia is a beautiful country so the overall experience was delightful.

AVYLD Inaugural Dialogue — May 2017
WHAT THEY SAID
The dialogue was a transformative experience. It was a privilege to have such a unique opportunity to build strong connections, with exceptional people, while deeply engaging with the key issues affecting our region. It was also an incredibly valuable investment in building a deeper bilateral relationship between young people in Vietnam and Australia. The work that went into making it happen was exceptional and the results speak for themselves.
