WHAT IS #ASEFYLS

The ASEF Young Leaders Summit (ASEFYLS) is a Youth platform that connects young people across Asia & Europe, applying a 360 degree approach on leadership development and community engagement: 1) self-leadership (you), 2) team leadership (we) and 3) societal leadership (all).

The ASEFYLS Capacity Buildings 2024 is a youth leadership programme focusing on ‘Leadership in Society 5.0’, with collaborative programme elements taking place both virtually and physically. 

The Society 5.0 concept descrbes a human-centered society that balances economic advancement with the resolution of social problems by a system that highly integrates cyberspace and physical space. ASEFYLS will explore what kind of leaderhip is needed for Society 5.0 and how young people can prepare with ethical, inclusive and sustainable values. 

It aims to give #Youth the opportunity to:

BACKGROUND

WHAT WILL #ASEFYLS CAPACITY BUILDINGS 2024 OFFER?

The ASEFYLS Capacity Building 2024 programme consists of 3 phases with the aim to give participants the opportunity to learn, to collaborate and to turn theory into action:

Through e-learning and virtual collaboration platforms, the Knowledge Building phase brings together 80 participants over 5 weeks, fusing theory, training and policy.

We invited youth to an in-depth knowledge journey and peer-to-peer exploration into Leadership and Society 5.0. This phase is a month-long online programme with weekly sessions.

Participants will attend in-person either:

  • Beijing, China | 10 – 18 August 2024

Or

  • Budapest, Hungary | 6 – 12 October 2024

The In-Person Trainings will physically bring together over 40 participants in each location to engage in people-to-people dialogue exchanges, networking and learning in a local context. The Trainings will include the following elements:

  1. Thematic workshops and panel discussions on Leadership and Society 5.0
  2. Study Visits, to provide inspiration and case studies to contextualise what they have learnt
  3. Cultural exchange, both within the local context, and between participants

The ASEFYLS encourages participants to demonstrate their leadership through organising multiplier events in their local communities to reach larger audiences on the topic of ‘Leadership & Society 5.0’.
