About

The KAS-ASEM Youth Summit, organized by Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Cambodia in support of the 13 ASEM Summit and Cambodian chairmanship, is a public academic seminar where young students from Cambodia and other ASEM countries can join in a shared platform, exchange their ideas and advocate for a better world through their collective voice. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the uncertainty of hosting the conference in a physical format is high. Therefore, the KAS-ASEM Youth Summit 2021 is going to be conducted virtually. The outcomes of the conference, including the ASEM Youths’ Joint Statement and event report, will be published which can possibly serve as an insightful item for the ASEM government’s decision-making. 

 

Expected number of participants: 30-50. 

 

Objectives
