Education

Overview

ASEF's work in Education

Facilitate education collaboration between youth, students, teachers & educators, higher education & EdTech experts with policy makers across Asia and Europe.

The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) is an intergovernmental, not-for-profit organisation which brings together the people of Asia and Europe to address common global challenges. It is the only permanent institution of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) political dialogue Process and is publicly funded by voluntary contributions from 53 ASEM Partners.

Education is one of ASEF’s key thematic areas. In this field, we connect the youth, students, teachers & educators, higher education leaders & EdTech experts with policy makers across both regions. Through policy dialogues, capacity building and the creation of bi-regional networks, we contribute to innovation in the formal and non-formal education sector and towards the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN Agenda2030.

Education projects promote inclusive & equitable access across all education sectors and engage civil society and government stakeholders in interdisciplinary, technology-driven and lifelong learning opportunities to enhance quality education.

Further, we bring the voice of the youth into the ASEM Process and facilitate a structured dialogue between young people and ASEM Leaders, Foreign Ministers and Education Ministers. ASEF’s education projects are part of the ASEM Education Process and their outcomes feed into the agenda of the ASEM Education Ministers’ Meetings (ASEMMEs).

Over the past 5 years ASEFEdu has organised more than 40 projects in secondary education, higher education & the youth sector. These activities have provided the opportunity for experiential learning and capacity building to over 4,300 participants from all 51 ASEM countries. Our project have an equal gender balance and welcome participants from all socio-economic and educational background and mixed abilities. Our projects primarily contribute to three Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):

  1. SDG4: Quality Education
  2. SDG8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
  3. SDG13: Climate Action

Across 28 projects in the last 5 years we have brought together over 1,700 participants from all 51 ASEM Partner Countries, ranging from teachers, young professionals, students, rectors and higher education managers.
