An initiative of Brisbane City Council

Young Professionals' Forum (YPs@APCS)

You are here


The Young Professionals' Forum (YPs@APCS) is an ongoing feature of APCS and is focussed on developing our future leaders of the Asia Pacific.

YPs@APCS provides an invaluable professional development opportunity for emerging private and public sector leaders from the Asia Pacific. Young people aged between 18 and 30 will be given a unique opportunity to network with business, government and industry leaders, build connections with young professionals across the Asia Pacific and join the regional dialogue at APCS.

YP delegates will be presented with a series of urban challenges relating to the Summit program themes and will be tasked with finding solutions which are cost neutral or revenue positive to city administrations. YPs will present their solutions of tomorrow to today's leaders.
