Asia Europe Foundation (ASEF) is a not-for-profit, intergovernmental organisation which strengthens relations between Asia and Europe. ASEF invites youth to the 7th Model ASEM (Asia Europe Meeting Summit), unleash the negotiator in you and show that you are a consensus builder!
The 7th Model ASEM is your opportunity to discover your diplomatic vein!
The 7th Model ASEM is a 3-day youth conference and political simulation of the actual Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Summit. Model ASEM is a platform for political debate and negotiation where over 150 participants from the 51 Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) countries have the possibility to experience first-hand Asia-Europe diplomacy through role-play exercises, practical trainings as well as meetings with the ASEM Leaders of today.
In conjunction with the 11th ASEM Summit and the 20th Anniversary of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) process, Model ASEM serves as a sustainable platform for the youth to engage with the ASEM process and to create direct interactions with the ASEM Leaders. Participants will develop a consensus-based Chair’s Statement, which is to be presented to the ASEM Leaders at the Opening Ceremony of the ASEM11.
The programme includes online pre-conference research and training modules with individual tasks, case studies and team work exercises.
During the 3-day programme in Ulaanbaatar, participants will join plenary sessions, working groups and practical trainings with a focus on the 3 ASEM pillars: economic, political and socio- cultural.
Visits to Diplomatic Missions of ASEM countries located in Ulaanbaatar will be arranged and, where possible, interactions between the young leaders and the ASEM Leaders facilitated.
