What happened at CAMP 2015? 

The China Australia Millennial Project Summit in Sydney from 1st-5th June brought together young innovators from Australia and China to tackle global challenges and create solutions.


China Australia Millennial Project (CAMP) is a world-first bilateral incubator uniting top young leaders, innovators and changemakers from China with their Australian peers. CAMP believes we can do better to bring Australia and China together by deepening networks, forging friendships and expanding potential for ongoing collaboration. We're introducing tomorrow's leaders to their future allies.

We've just wrapped up a fantastic week of creativity, friendship, ideation and innovation amongst our 130 delegates. From a dawn climb of the Sydney Harbour Bridge to a glittering gala dinner in Town Hall, the dazzling lights of Vivid provided the backdrop to a world-first event.

The final three teams pitched their ideas again at the CAMP Gala Dinner at Town Hall, competing to win a trip to China to pitch to the OTEC entrepreneurs' summit and a 1 million RMB prize.
