Fully Funded 3rd ASEF Young Leaders Summit in Belgium

Deadline: Sunday, 20 May 2018, 23:59 GMT

The ASEF Young Leaders Summit (ASEFYLS) is the to-go-place for young people willing to un-learn, re-learn and learn new concepts, strategies and actions on how to create sustainable impact in society.

ASEFYLS is an experiential platform for Asian and European students and young professionals that adapts a 360° approach on leadership development. ASEFYLS recognises that leadership takes place across all spectrum in society: at home, in lecture halls, in board rooms, within the community as well as from the streets up to the political arena. Leadership is for those who are determined to take a leap by asking questions, thinking critically, action-planning and collaborating.

ASEFYLS takes place alongside the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Summits, where Heads of States from the 51 ASEM partner countries, the EU and the ASEAN Secretariat meet to discuss the status and future of Asia-Europe relations

  • Citizen of any of the 51 Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Partner countries

  • Strong command of English (verbal and written)


  • When? 15 – 19 October 2018
  • Where? Brussels, Belgium
  • Costs? No registration or participation fee. The organisers will cover accommodation and meals for the duration of the conference, plus a travel subsidy from your country of residence to the starting point and back.
