*As an INDIVIDUAL*

- You can even organise your own events!

*Spreading the word in OXFORD*
6. Involve your national interest society
- By circulating how members may participate as individuals
- By sharing and representing your culture and country at University and Project SEA events
- By sharing your events with Project SEA via our mailing list and Facebook page to build an SEA identity in Oxford
7. Involve your coursemates
- Many students study SEA in their courses but don’t have the opportunity to discuss it with students with similar interests. Tell your coursemates about Project SEA and how they can participate as individuals.
8. Talk to your tutor/supervisor/department
- Especially if they are a governing body member of Green-Templeton College where the Project will be based or has related interests in the region. We need the support of as many dons in Oxford and especially GTC for this Project to succeed.
- In particular, we are looking to strengthen support for the Project in the sciences, economics and politics/international relations.
- There are many of you who study SEA who are supervised by academics who have little experience of our region. You are the most eloquent spokesperson for the need for more joined-up thinking and support for SEA studies at Oxford
*Spreading the word in the UK*
9. Talk to your Embassy/High Commission
- About how we would like to bring the monthly summit for ASEAN ambassadors in the UK to Oxford.
- About the possibility of giving the Project moral, academic and even financial support. Apart from seeking funding, the Project is keen to build academic and industry collaborations with the SEAsian region, and embassies are well-placed to advise on all of these issues.

10. Involve your local Oxbridge Society
- Consider giving a presentation about the Project at a society event, e.g. the annual Oxbridge dinner
- Attend any meetings with University representatives in SEA to express support for the Project and its activities to underscore the importance of SEA to the University of Oxford
- Oxbridge alumni also are a treasure trove of links to academic and philanthropic contacts
11. Talk to your contacts in your government/local university/scholarship board
- About potential collaborations and possibly funding opportunities. We want to find ways of benefiting both students of and from in Oxford while contributing to addressing issues of importance in our home countries.
