4TH ASEF YOUNG LEADERS SUMMIT

INTRODUCTION

The ASEF Young Leaders Summit (ASEFYLS) is ASEM‘s official Youth platform that connects young people with the Heads of States and Governments from 51 Asian & European countries and the political leaders of the EU & the ASEAN Secretariat.

The 4th ASEF Young Leaders Summit (ASEFYLS4) is a fully-funded 10-month long youth leadership programme connected to the 13th ASEM Summit (ASEM13) in June 2021 in Cambodia. The ASEFYLS4 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).

The 4th edition is a hybrid project with collaborative elements taking place virtually, in Cambodia, as well as across ASEM countries. We address 4 thematic areas:

  1. SDG3: Good Health & Wellbeing – Ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages
  2. SDG4: Quality Education – Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
  3. SDG8: Decent Work & Economic Growth – Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
  4. SDG13: Climate Action – Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
