WHAT WE DO
Global Voices is a not-for profit that identifies and develops the next generation of Australian leaders by providing practical experience in foreign policy and international relations. Since our founding in 2011, we have supported nearly two-hundred young people to attend over forty international summits. Our delegates attend meetings at the United Nations, OECD, World Bank, IMF, APEC and G20.
The Global Voices Scholarship includes a research fellowship, pre-departure briefings and an international program of practical sessions, workshops, policy exercises and institutional visits.
Global Voices provides unparalleled access to high-level global geopolitical forums offering a unique professional development opportunity.
Global Voices Scholars meet senior public servants, policy experts, think-tanks and Members of Parliament at our pre-departure briefings in Canberra.
RESEARCH & POLICY
The Global Voices Research Fellowship allows scholars to develop a deeper understanding of a global issue and produce a policy paper with practical recommendations.
Global Voices is an independent, not-for-profit organisation with the mission to develop Australia’s future leaders in diplomacy, policy and advocacy through practical, international experience.
“It was an incredible privilege and honour to represent Australia on the world stage ... The experience left me inspired to contribute towards the key challenges discussed at the forum, such as climate change and the global migration crisis.”Delegate, 2016 World Bank and IMF Annual Meetings, Washington DC.
“You gain international exposure to organisations most people rarely experience and become part of a vibrant alumni community.”
April Wenke, Queensland University of Technology Business School, 2014 WTO Public Forum, Geneva.
“Now, with an awe-inspiring visit to Canberra and the Habitat III Conference behind me ... I will aspire to be one of Australia's future leaders, in the hope that one day I will be on the other side, meeting with Global Voices delegates to fill them with the same self-belief that has been bestowed upon me thanks to the incredible generosity demonstrated by Global Voices and [my] University.”
Delegate, RMIT University, 2016 Habitat III Conference, Quito.
