The 4th ASEF Young Leaders Summit focuses on ‘Sustainable Development in a post-COVID-19 World’ and incorporates 3 spheres for youth leadership: 1) self-leadership (you), 2) team leadership (we) and 3) societal leadership (all). To demonstrate the youth’s role in driving Sustainable Development, the programme encourages participants to collaborate & volunteer on meaningful community projects with an Asia-Europe twist. Based on the four ASEFYLS4 focus areas (SDG3, SDG4, SDG8 and SDG13), participants are allocated to specific working groups and work on “Leadership in Action” activities. In total, the ASEFYLS4 facilitates 15 community projects, each led by 1 ASEFYLS4 Navigator and supported by up to 10 participants from different Asian & European countries.
The project “Access and Success for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)” connects students of mixedabilities and educators in higher education for a peer-to-peer ecchange and collaboration across the ASEM countries.
The project will work on two areas:
1) Design and implement online workshops to promote increased access opportunities and support mechanisms for students with ASD; and
2) Develop a report on the status of access & success in Higher Education across ASEM.
