The ASEF Summer University (ASEFSU) is a 2-week experiential learning journey and “Interdisciplinary Innovathon” for Asian and European students & young professionals. Designed to foster cross-cultural exchanges and networks among youth, it will offer you the opportunity to broaden your horizons, deepen your knowledge on contemporary issues, and propose concrete solutions to societal challenges.
ASEFSU22 will be conducted under the theme “Sustainable Tourism: Youth Driving Green Growth” and it consists of a mix of practical team exercises, thought-provoking lectures, group research and experiential learning. As a participant you will be given the opportunity to learn and share your knowledge on sustainable tourism and green economies through a local “Innovathon” and Challenge Hub.
ASEFSU22 will focus on the 3 Dimensions of Sustainable Development:
The ASEFSU22 consists of 3 phases:
Phase 1: Online Preparatory phase (4 weeks)
In this phase, you will actively take part in an online preparatory phase to familiarise with the topics of the project. As part of it you will attend online webinars on topics ranging from Tourism & the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to International Relations & ASEM, and you will work on individual as well as group assignments.
Phase 2: “Interdisciplinary Innovathon” in Croatia & Slovenia (2 weeks)
The 1-week programme in Slovenia offers you trainings, workshops, lectures and study visits to develop your understanding of the themes covered by the project. In Croatia you will go from theory to practice as you are given the opportunity to co-develop and test solutions to environmental, tourism and youth employment challenges faced by local authorities, businesses and civil society organisations in the region.
Phase 3: Online Post-project Phase and Spin-off activities (4 weeks)
All prototypes developed on site – analogue and digital – will be analysed and tested after the project by relevant stakeholders and communities engaged. In addition, the project’s best-performing participants will be invited to present the outcomes at high-level ASEM Ministerial Meetings and other events.
No registration or participation fee. The organisers will provide participants with travel subsidy, accommodation and meals.
