New tactics for youth employment across Asia and Europe

Project Updates


1 Jul 2015

The recent ASEF ExpertsMeeting on Re-engineering Tactics for Youth Employment from 29 June to 1 July 2015 was very timely. To facilitate cooperation and identify possible solutions for Asia and Europe, the meeting brought together experts from leading institutions and organisations which represented the 5 following sectors: education, policy, social enterprises, corporations and start-ups. One major focus of the discussions was on a more holistic understanding of social entrepreneurship and its role in promoting youth employment in both regions.


The meeting also kick-started ASEF’s long-term engagement and commitment to tackle youth unemployment in ASEM countries and to equip young people with necessary soft skills, leadership and entrepreneurship competences.

Results of the meeting, including an e-publication on case studies and best practices, will feed into the preparation of the ASEF Young Leaders’ Summit on Entrepreneurship and Youth Employment, which will take place inNovember 2015 in Luxemburg.
