A2ELP is an initiative of the Australia-ASEAN Council (AAC), which was launched in 2015 and is designed to enhance engagement between Australia and Southeast Asia. It brings together social innovators who have founded enterprises to address critical challenges facing the region including the environment, agricultural production, education, health and ageing populations.

Participants will travel to Melbourne and Sydney for a ten-day programme, where they will take part in a range of workshops, site visits, master classes, peer learning sessions and networking events.

Through these events, they will explore the role of businesses in driving social change, enhance their understanding of the risks and potential of social ventures, and learn techniques to develop their enterprises and maximise their impact.
