Students to Develop a Common Vision for Asia and Europe

Project Updates


1 Oct 2014

More than 130 students from 49 ASEM countries will gather from 8–12 October 2014 in Milan, Italy to participate in the Model ASEM 2014, a simulation of the 10th ASEM Summit (ASEM10). The participants have been selected from more than 1,700 applications.


Model ASEM 2014 will offer these students the opportunity to deliberate on pertinent issues in Asia-Europe cooperation, including climate change mitigation, economic growth, education and skills development, pandemic influenza and more. By exploring national and regional strategies, the students will formulate policy recommendations to address crucial political, economic and socio-cultural issues in both regions.


As part of the programme, student delegates will visit Consulates of ASEM member states in Milan, where they will witness first-hand the roles and various activities of diplomatic missions. The participants will develop their skills in diplomacy, negotiation and public speaking.


The conference will conclude with a joint Model ASEM Declaration, which ASEF will channel to ASEM leaders and their delegations at ASEM10.


Model ASEM 2014 is organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), together with the ASEF University Alumni Network (ASEFUAN) and the Politecnico de Milano School of Management.
