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:
- economy & finance;
- religion & spirituality;
- science & technology; and
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.
