14 May Young innovators brought together for China Australia Millennial Project 2018
The award-winning training program, China Australia Millennial Project (CAMP) is in its third year this year, bringing together young innovators from Australia and China for 100 days to learn to apply the principles of design thinking in order to identify sustainable solutions to global issues.
The CAMPx2018 start up training program brings together 100 young Australian and Chinese leaders from all industries to design industry solutions, up-skill their cross-cultural communication, learn design-thinking and strengthen the Australia-China relationship.
As part of the program, eighty millennials from both nations travelled to Beijing for an intense innovation bootcamp, and a mentor from the program, Allan Chou, said the experience was very rewarding.
“Being a mentor at CAMPx2018 Beijing Week really puts across the importance of physical presence on the ground for the Australian teams to experience the Chinese culture in its truest form,” he said.
“The group was open minded and has now has a better sense of understanding of the Chinese people and their environment.”
Attendees will build trusted alliances to activate and empower the Asia-Pacific relationships and to create solutions to the problems that characterise the 21st century.
Millennials are chosen to take part in this program because they are currently the largest generation, surpassing the baby boomers with 2.3 billion people within the category around the world.
