NSW Premier Mike Baird launches China Australia Millennial Project (CAMP) in Shanghai.
“I encourage young people from across China and NSW to get involved in this exciting new initiative,” Mr Baird said.
“A new initiative will bring together 100 young innovators from China and match them with 100 bright young minds from Australia for a five-day innovation workshop as part of CAMP,” he said.
“This initiative reflects the essence behind the Vivid Ideas program, which promotes ideas, discussion and debate.
“Successful applicants will be asked to work together to consider challenges common to both countries before being given an opportunity to pitch their ideas to compete for grants, venture capital, and consideration in the Premier’s Innovation Initiative” Mr Baird said.
CAMP was recently recognised by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Australia China Council (ACC) with a seed grant. ACC awarded funding to 33 projects in the new strategic priority areas of Education, Economic Diplomacy, Arts and Culture and Australian Studies in China.
“The China Australia Millennial Project is supported, among many other government and private sponsors, by the Australia-China Council as a new platform with significant potential to enable future champions of bilateral engagement to meet, build relationships and make practical contributions to Australia-China relations and broad global challenges”.
The Australia-China Council was established by the Australian Government to promote people-to-people connectivity between Australia and China.
Calls for expressions of interest from Chinese and Australian innovators aged 18 – 35 are now open at www.australiachina.org. Express interest today or share this with those who might be keen to.
