About the Tour

Next January, we’ll be taking 16 young leaders from around Australia on a four-week tour of Europe to explore the complex realities of diplomacy in the 21st Century.

Over four weeks and seven countries, you’ll meet and engage with the key players in international diplomacy – from UN representatives, European politicians, diplomats, embassies, leading thinkers, to NGOs and grassroots organisations. You’ll visit breathtaking historical sites, and immerse yourself in everything Europe has to offer.

If you’re in Years 10-12, join us as we explore the places, people and forces that have shaped the world as we know it. Starting from scratch, we’ll chart the birth of modern democracy, the rise of the nation-state and the evolution of diplomacy to the current day. From the French Revolution to the fall of the Berlin Wall, we’ll explore the big moments, ideas and challenges that our world leaders have grappled with over the past 400 years.
