Raj Burli

Burli’s passion lies in advocating for social justice and raising awareness about socio-political issues impacting young people. It’s this drive that led him to become a Board Director for UN Youth Australia, one of the largest entirely youth ran non-profits in the country that endeavors to educate students across the nation about different issues that impact young people. After completing his undergraduate degrees in Aviation and International Business, he interned for Global Citizen, a non-profit working to eradicate global poverty. It was here that he discovered his passion for digital peace and its importance for our future. In search of an intersection for his interests, he returned home to Melbourne, Australia, where he is currently undertaking a Master of Science with a focus on sustainability and digital security within aviation.
