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 “The Adjustment Manual: Work from Home Edition” helps work from home individuals learn the essential skills and techniques to adapt better to new demands in the current scenario and to mitigate a potential negative impact on their mental health.
The project will work on two areas:
1) Designing and executing a series of skill-building workshops for resilience; and
2) Collating mental health policies from diverse institutions across ASEM to identify good practices and to develop recommendations.

“The Adjustment Manual: Work from Home Edition” is proud to present the first part of its Well-Being Workshop series. Part 1: Self-Time, conducted by Dr. Benny Soliman, focuses on teaching WFH professionals how to establish a healthy work-life balance through mindsets and practical tools that help develop the right skillset to tackle WFH challenges such as constant availability and burnout. Part 1: Self-Time features two workshop sessions that aim to teach parallel perspectives to approach the WFH hurdles. We highly recommend attending both sessions as they are designed to complement one another and provide a holistic experience.
Session 1 – Mindsets
This session aims at exploring the complicated mentalities of self-discipline, motivation and compartmentalising as beneficial ways to combat and learn a healthy perspective to face WFH-based distress.
Date: Saturday, 25 September 2021
Time: 10am-12pm UTC
Session 2 – Practical Tools
This session focuses on implementable skills such as grounding techniques and other applicable techniques such as time management and to-do planning resources.
Date: Saturday, 2 October 2021
Time: 10am-12pm UTC
