There’s nothing quite like YSEALI Summit. These are four reasons why you need to apply for YSEALI Summit!

1. Get Inspired from Fearless Speakers, Mentors, Volunteers, & Participants who Did it!

In YSEALI Summit, you will meet fearless leaders across ASEAN who have done the things you dream of doing. Not only you will be inspired by the amazing guest speakers ( who will definitely blow you away by their passion & dedication), but also by the incredible mentors, participants, and volunteers who have unique experiences to tackle the biggest challenges in ASEAN. As a mentor, I myself learned empowering stories of participants, mentors, and volunteers who have fought for disabled rights, environmental sustainability, and equal access to education. I am forever inspired!

2. Collaborate to Solve the Biggest Challenges in the Countries

This is one of the most intense as well as exciting moments in the Summit as you will only get super limited time to discuss with your team how you will continue to lead the change you want to see after the Summit. The good news is you have tremendous help from speakers, mentors & volunteers who will open up your mind and share valuable insight, tips, and tricks to explore urgent & worth solving problems in your country & ASEAN. Check out some of the best tips to share your life-changing ideas to the world from the sketchnotes below:

What I like the most about YSEALI is they already have solid brainstorming method that will guide your team to find what really matters. My favorite part of this event is Pitching in front of the judges. In 2 minutes, you will see how amazing group of YSEALI Summit 2019 share their biggest ideas to tackle the challenges.

We could not be more excited to announce that we got the third place of YSEALI Summit project competition. I could not be more proud of what my team has done to achieve this grant!

3. Discover How Local People Make a Difference

There is nothing more important than seeing what local people have done in the country to make a difference. This is definitely what makes YSEALI Summit so different as you will get a chance to visit local organization that really walk the talk. In YSEALI Summit 2019, we got a chance to gain knowledge and hands on experience from local research center that drive people to preserve endangered species, collect trash to clean up garbage, and turn waste into valuable materials. I think this is totally a moving experience as you can dive how they started their local impact to start a change.

4. Celebrate Cultural Performance like No Other!

You won’t believe it till you see it. YSEALI Summit 2019 participants, mentors, and volunteers are hard workers, thinkers, and change makers and at the same time super talented dancers & performers who are so passionate with their country’s culture. You will see magical & relevant cultural performance from ASEAN countries like never before. I don’t think we have such many opportunities where young people across ASEAN come together to celebrate their culture.
