The European Union (EEAS) is seeking nominations for Young Leaders from Europe (EU28) to participate at EU-ASEAN Young Leaders’ Forum to be held on 26-27 February 2018, in Brussels, Belgium.
We are looking for inspiring young professionals and students (under 30 years of age) who are active in the politics, international relations, business, arts and culture, and civil society, and are committed to promote the future of EU-ASEAN relations.
The purpose of this Forum is to “reflect” on 40 years of the EU-ASEAN relations so far and to “look ahead” and discuss ideas for strengthening/upgrading EU-ASEAN relations. The Forum is to discuss the topics of:
1. Political and Security Issues
2. Economy, trade, business exchanges
3. People to people contacts
In particular, the selected Young Leaders should work to advance the role of youth in EU-ASEAN decision making, and share knowledge on EU-ASEAN cooperation from a wide range of perspectives.
The selected candidates will be sponsored by the European Union to participate at the EU-ASEAN Young Leaders’ Forum, arriving in Brussels on 25 February, and departing on 28 February 2018. Eligible costs include: an economy class air-ticket from home-base to Brussels and return, 3 nights hotel accommodation at THE HOTEL BRUSSELS, and residual perdiems.
The Forum would produce recommendations to be informally presented to the Strategic Thinkers’ Forum to be held back-to-back on 27-28 February 2018 in Brussels and later on to the ASEAN-EU Ministerial Meeting (AEMM) in 2018 as a contribution to the Ministerial deliberations.
Please kindly submit your CV together with a short motivation email to Dr. Ajaree Tavornmas firstname.lastname@example.org before the mentioned deadline. The initial application deadline is Friday 19 January 2018.
