ASEF Young Leaders Summit 2015

Entrepreneurship and Youth Employment

Contact: Nathalie Sajda

Department: Education Department

he ASEF Young Leaders Summit (#ASEFYLS) 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)

Selection criteria:

  • Citizen of any of the 51 Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) member countries
  • Young leaders - ranging from entrepreneurs, students, academics to professionals and beyond - between the ages of 18 and 30
  • Strong command in English (verbal and written)

ASEF follows the principles of equality, non-discrimination and equal opportunity. All applicants will be screened fairly regardless of sex, race, religion, belief, martial status, sexual orientation and disability.

The organisers will provide travel subsidy and accommodation to the successful participants based outside of Luxembourg. Meals will be provided to all selected participants for the full duration of the programme.
