The forum investigates 3 critical levels of leadership, namely: self-leadership (you), team leadership (we), and societal leadership (all)

The 3rd ASEF Young Leaders Summit (ASEFYLS3) organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation in conjunction with the 12th ASEM Summit, was dedicated to the topic of Ethical Leadership. The main goal was to understand, define and develop leadership among young people – by young people. This year, ASEFYLS3 welcomed 131 participants from 51 countries all over Asia and Europe when the summit was launched in Brussels.

The forum investigated 3 critical levels of leadership, namely: self-leadership (you), team leadership (we), and societal leadership (all). These 3 levels were at the core of the conversations, action-planning, learning experiences and networking of ASEFYLS3, all integrated in the 10-angle focus of the topic:

  1. culture;
  2. economy and finance;
  3. education;
  4. environment;
  5. family;
  6. media;
  7. politics;
  8. religion and spirituality;
  9. science and technology; and
  10. sports.

ASEFYLS3 adapted a 360° approach to leadership which recognised the very act of leading to be present across all spectrums of society—from home, to the classroom, in a business meeting to the streets. ASEFYLS3 was for young people who are willing to critically reflect, re-imagine and shape the notion of leadership — starting from themselves, within their communities and on an Asia-Europe scale.
