Report prepared by Office of Global Engagement, The University of Sydney
From 9-19 July 2018, the University of Sydney had the pleasure of hosting 48 exceptional participants from 18 APRU member institutions for the APRU Undergraduate Leaders’ Program (ULP).
Students from diverse backgrounds and cultures undertook a 10-day program to enhance their leadership skills and cross-cultural competency through a series of workshops, discussions, field trips and cultural activities.
Participants learned critical problem-solving skills through design thinking, a concept developed at the University of Sydney to solve complex problems across many disciplines. The program also included sessions on the new area of Planetary Health, focusing on sustainable and ethical food systems, as well as interactive sessions on ethical leadership, innovation and entrepreneurship. Participants worked in groups to present posters as their final assessment. These projects allowed students to work together to deepen their understanding of the 17 UN sustainable development goals and to propose solutions to real world problems currently affecting the Asia Pacific region.
