The 1st ASEF Young Leaders Summit (#ASEFYLS1) is for young thinkers and doers to question and explore how the entrepreneurial vein can trigger and nourish job-creation, mobility and social cohesion in Asia and Europe.
ASEFYLS is also an experiential space where fresh minds and influential leaders from both regions meet. Constructive dialogue, hands-on skills development and a Call for Action addressed to the ASEM Foreign Ministers are the core elements of the programme.
ASEFYLS emerged from the request by young citizens and ASEM Head of States and Governments for a closer interaction and exchange of perspectives on pressing societal issues in both regions. Now is your moment to shape this connection!
At ASEFYLS you will:
- Meet leaders from governments, business, academia and intergovernmental organisations
- Collaborate in a highly intercultural environment and link the dots between entrepreneurship and youth employment across 5 sectors: governments, corporations, education, startups and social enterprises
- Gain and develop skills required for your academic, professional and personal life
- Be able to meet and share your solutions and questions with the ASEM Leaders
When: 1-5 November 2015, in conjunction with the 12th ASEM Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (ASEM FMM12)
