3rd ASEF Young Leaders Summit #ASEFYLS3



15-19 October 2018, Brussels, Belgium

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.

The ASEFYLS is based on 5 pillars:

  • #knowledge_stretching Development of fresh and rewarding insights to equip both recognised and unsung young leaders with a tool-kit for action
  • #action_oriented Commitments and co-creation of spin-off activities linked to leadership and sustainable development in local communities
  • #network_based Space for networking among youth, community leaders, responsible business leaders, thought provoking academics and policy-makers
  • #leadership_exchange Opportunity for participation of ASEFYLS participants in the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Summit and relevant Ministers’ Meetings
  • #reciprocity_focused Joint learning and sharing of time, talent & resources beyond the ASEFYLS framework for greater impact

The 3rd ASEF Young Leaders Summit (ASEFYLS3) will take place in conjunction with the 12th ASEM Summit (ASEM12) on 15-19 October 2018 in Brussels, Belgium. ASEFYLS3 focuses on Ethical Leadership, the human-centred form of responsible leadership, and aims to dismantle and re-assemble the concept thereof: in the context of self-leadership, team leadership and societal leadership.

But how can one distinguish between a leader and an ethical leader? Does it show in the decision-making process or the impact of the decision taken? And how shall one navigate between diverse and competing values and expectations, from a micro to a macro scale. ASEFYLS3 aims to nourish ethically literate leaders by providing a platform for reflection, dialogue and practice.

ASEFYLS3 focuses on values and challenges of ethical leadership embedded in 11 spheres:

  1. Culture
  2. Economy
  3. Education
  4. Environment
  5. Family
  6. Finance
  7. Media
  8. Politics
  9. Religion and spirituality
  10. Science and technology
  11. Sports

The 4-day conference will conclude with an “ASEFYLS3 Call for Action & Commitments on Ethical Leadership”.

ASEFYLS3 is preceded by 2 ASEFYLS Navigators Trainings in Pune, India and Warsaw, Poland respectively. The trainings serve as a springboard and capacity building opportunity for the youth facilitators who will guide the ASEFYLS3 participants during on-site discussions and spin-off activity preparations.

Deadline: Sunday, 20 May 2018, GMT 23.59
