EYP is excited to announce that we will be collaborating with the Asia-Europe Foundation and cover the 4th ASEF Young Leader Summit (ASEFYLS4) with a team of young journalists from Asia and Europe. We have been collaborating with ASEF since 2016 and produced various Orange Magazine editions on their youth events.
ASEFYLS4 is a 10-month youth leadership programme addressing the question ‘How can YOUth shape Sustainable Development in a post-COVID-19 world?’. During an online knowledge-building phase around 200 participants from 51 Asian and European countries have the opportunity to increase their knowledge on incorporating their leadership skills in 4 thematic areas, namely Good Health & Wellbeing, Quality Education, Decent Work & Economic Growth as well as Climate Action.
In addition, participants will represent the voice of youth during the 13th ASEM Summit and will apply their gained knowledge in local projects all over ASEM countries. A magazine providing an overview of the project will be produced by Orange by the end of the year and articles will be added continuously to the Orange website – so keep an eye on it for interesting interviews, articles and research pieces!
