ASEM Youth Survey on Leadership

The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) in Singapore is currently welcoming students and youth aged 18-30 from Asia and Europe to contribute to the ASEM Youth Survey. ASEF is an intergovernmental organisation supported by the ASEM Partners, which are 51 Asian & European countries, including Austria, the European Union and the ASEAN Secretariat. 

The ASEM Youth Report will be presented by youth representatives to the Heads of State and Governments at the 13th ASEM Summit and circulated through ASEF’s networks to Ministries of Education & Youth as well as youth organisations in both regions, with the aim of informing policy makers and relevant stakeholders.

All participating youth will receive an e-book on Leadership by the Center for Creative Leadership. In addition, one Asian and one European youth respondent will be selected through a lucky draw and receive a fully funded “Trainer Essentials” course by the UN System Staff College. You can complete the survey until 21 July.
