Are you passionate and interested in the EU-Asia relationship?

Do you care about the representation of young voices in Europe’s and Asia’s engagement in the Indo-Pacific and have innovative ideas you would like to share with other young leaders?

And are you interested in working together in an intercultural and interdisciplinary conference setting to make your voice heard?

Then check out the opportunity to become a Youth Delegate for the Young Indo-Pacific Forum in Brussels from the 9th to the 14th of December 2022, held alongside the upcoming EU-ASEAN Summit!

Through the topic of ‘Hybrid Threats’ – Youth Perspectives and Narratives, YIPF welcomes global, young participants to discover EU-Indo-Pacific insights on our five panels: climate change, human rights and migration, trade, technology, and security as well as additional programme elements in collaboration with the EU-ASEAN Business and EU-ASEAN Youth Summit.

ASEF are partnering with the Young Indo-Pacific Forum co-organisers: the Student Think Tank for Europe-Asia Relations (STEAR)Polis 180 & European Guanxi.

This Forum will bring together 50 youth from Asia and Europe to engage with experts across various fields and to make the youth voice heard with policy-makers. A number of travel scholarships are available for selected youth, however self-funded on-site participation and online participation are also a possibility.

As part of the programme, ASEF’s Education Department will be launching a brand new MOOC on the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Process & Asia-Europe Relations!
