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’ focuses on 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 in 2 main areas:
1) Workshops for work from home professionals to develop the necessary mindsets and pratical tools for WFH resilience
2) Collating mental health policies from diverse companies across ASEM to identify good practices and develop recommendations.
The ‘Adjustment Manual: Work from Home Edition’ is proud to present our Mental Health Policies and Protections for Work from Home Professionals. This policy brief is a product of over ten months of intensive research and the review of a multi-cultural research survey to investigate good mental health practices and areas in need of intervention. The policy recommendations focus on measures that employers can take to safe-guard their employees mental health, combat the stigma of mental illness and raise awareness for self-care techniques.
