ASEF Young Leaders Summit

3 Sep 2015

ASEF invites interested members to apply for the upcoming youth project – the ASEF Young Leaders Summit (#ASEFYLS) on “Entrepreneurship and Youth Employment” on 1-5 November 2015 in Luxembourg.
ASEFYLS is for young thinkers and doers between the ages of 18-30 from 51 ASEM member countries to question and explore how the entrepreneurial vein can trigger and nourish job-creation, mobility and social cohesion in Asia and Europe. Constructive dialogue, hands-on skills development and a Call for Action addressed to the ASEM Foreign Ministers are the core elements of this collaborative and highly intercultural Programme
Our confirmed speakers include H E Federica MOGHERINI, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission; H E Jean ASSELBORN, Foreign Minister of Luxembourg; H E Claude MEISCH, Minister of Education, Children and Youth and Minister Higher Education and Research of Luxembourg; and Mr Peter VESTERBACKA, Chief Marketing Officer and Mighty Eagle of Rovio Entertainment (creator of the globally successful Angry Birds franchise), among other inspiring leaders speaking at the conference.
Held in conjunction with the 12th ASEM Foreign Ministers' Meeting (ASEM FMM12), ASEFYLS is an experiential space where fresh minds and influential leaders from both regions meet. Now is your moment to shape this connection!
