“TO SECURE AUSTRALIA’S FUTURE BY PREPARING THE NEXT GENERATION OF AUSTRALIA’S NATIONAL SECURITY LEADERS FOR THE INEVITABLE CHALLENGES AND CRISES AUSTRALIA WILL FACE IN THE 21ST CENTURY“
WHAT IS THE AUSTRALIAN CRISIS SIMULATION SUMMIT?
From 14 – 18 September 2020, sixty of Australia’s future national security leaders connected online for a 5-day national security Summit. The program included three intense, realistic and challenging crisis simulations, a national security careers and networking day, and live, interactive panel discussions with the people and institutions who play a key role in shaping national security discourse in Australia.
In an effort to mitigate the risk posed to students by COVID-19, the Summit was headquartered at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra and via the latest virtual conference technologies, delegates were able to participate in the Summit from the comfort of their homes. The nation’s capital provides unique access to leading figures in Australia’s national security space. We have been working closely with leading academics at the ANU, our Patron, Admiral (Ret.) Chris Barrie, AC, Former Chief of the Australian Defence Force, and the Department of Defence to deliver the Summit.
Students had the opportunity to develop the skills the next generation of Australian leaders need to tackle the inevitable challenges of the 21st Century. Students left with a greater understanding of the intricacies of Australia’s foreign and defence policy challenges, a network of potential employers and connections to people with similar passions and career ambitions.
The ACSS is excited to be working with the following partners to deliver a Summit of national significance.
