ASEF Young Leaders Summit to be launched in 2015

Corporate News


5 Jan 2015

ASEF is delighted to announce the 1st edition of the ASEF Young Leaders Summit, which will take place in November 2015 in conjunction with the 12th ASEM Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (ASEM FMM12) in Luxembourg. 


The ASEF Young Leaders Summit is a response to the participants’ call during Model ASEM 2014, where they expressed a strong interest for a forum that enables a direct interaction between emerging leaders and current ASEM Leaders on specific topics. This need was also emphasised at the recent 10th ASEM Summit in October 2014 in Milan, Italy, to better engage the young people in the ASEM process. 


The ASEF Young Leaders Summit will be a solution-centred forum that triggers discussions and synergies of ideas and facilitates exchange of best practices. The 1st edition will address pressing issues stemming from youth employment and invites young professionals, students and fresh graduates, social entrepreneurs and other practitioners who address youth employment across Asia and Europe. 


More information on the concept, programme and Open Call for Participation will follow in the coming months.
