About the Tour

This May, we will be welcoming 25 young leaders from across Australia on a three-weekend online international activity to explore the complex realities of diplomacy in the 21st Century. 

During this activity, 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. 

Our activity will explore the history that has played such an important role in shaping contemporary European and international politics. We’ll chart the political movements that have empowered or oppressed populations around the globe, and understand the history of revolution and war. We’ll also take an in-depth look at some of the most important ideas and forces shaping today’s international community – including the role of the UN, the rise of radical politics throughout Europe, and Russia’s reignited confrontation with the Western world. 

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.
