On 20 June 2019, ASEF received a delegation of students from the EU Centre’s Summer School on Challenges to Multiculturalism & Multilateralism (#cmmsummerschool). The students paid a visit particularly to learn about decision-making practices and managing diversities in the EU and ASEAN regions.

Delegates were welcomed by ASEF Executive Director Ambassador Karsten WARNECKE, who shared his thoughts on Asia-Europe relations.

The students, demonstrating keen interest in ASEF’s approach to stimulating collaboration between Asia and Europe, responded by pitching various questions to Ambassador Warnecke and the ASEF staff.

The students also participated in a word cloud game, where ‘Culture’ was the most popular choice to the question of ‘What connects Asia & Europe?’


After showcasing the variety of ASEF projects that facilitate Asia-Europe collaboration, the students were on their way again, en route to the International Conference on Cohesive Societies before preparing for the 2nd half of the summer school programme in Maastricht, The Netherlands.
