The AAMEP will involve three main kinds of sessions or opportunities. These include speaker sessions, delegate interaction and live virtual tours.
Through weekly live speaker sessions, delegates will gain exclusive access to renowned speakers and experts in their fields. Delivered via Zoom, speaker sessions will include insightful presentations followed by engaging and interactive Q&A sessions where delegates engage in dialogue with guest speakers from across the region.
Speaker sessions will be held three times a week and represent a core element of the AAMEP program.
The likely times for these sessions are:
Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays
4-6pm KL/ Manila/ Brunei
7-9pm Melbourne/ Sydney (daylight savings time)
Delegate interaction and connection is at the heart of the AAMEP experience. Delegates will be provided with multiple platforms and opportunities to connect, collaborate and learn from inspiring young leaders from across the region.
From delegate social sessions to one-on-one virtual coffees and in-depth breakout room discussions, the AAMEP will offer a range of exciting opportunities to form friendships, connections and collaborations with your fellow delegates across the life of the program and beyond.
The timing of delegate interaction is more flexible than speaker sessions and can include:
- AAMEP social sessions (optional)
- Most likely on Fridays
- 4-5pm Bangkok; 5-6pm KL/Manila/Brunei; 8-9pm Melbourne/Sydney
- One-on-one coffees with fellow delegates
- Each delegate will be encouraged to pre-select a time that they plan to be available for a 30 min virtual coffee during most weeks of the program
- Interactive delegate platforms & resources. This can be completed in your own time. We recommend allowing an average of around 30 min – 1 hour a week for this.
LIVE VIRTUAL TOURS
Live virtual tours offer a unique, real-time opportunity to delve into the local culture and history of communities across the region. Virtually visit some of the region’s most important sites, and see community projects and local spaces first-hand through livestreamed, customised tours created especially for the AAMEP & AIMEP programs.
We plan to schedule several live virtual tours spread across the 8 week program, subject to any lockdowns or COVID-19 restrictions at the time.
These exact time of these tours is yet to be confirmed, but most will likely be held on weekends. We strongly encourage delegates to attend tours held outside their own country.
