We joined the 4th ASEF Young Leaders Summit (ASEFYLS4)


ASEF Young Leaders Summit is the place for Asian and European young professionals to meet political leaders, top-tier business representatives, prominent thinkers, and doers. It is the forum for youth to voice ideas and develop an ASEM Youth Declaration addressed to ASEM Leaders on youth issues that matter to Asia and Europe.

The ASEFYLS4 programme consists of 3 phases:

  • Knowledge Building

An in-depth knowledge journey and peer-to-peer exploration into Asia-Europe Relations, the Sustainable Development Goals and Leadership with a certified course and training led by the College of Europe in Natolin and the Center for Creative Leadership respectively. Besides focus group discussions & youth collaboration, the highlights of this phase will be Youth Dialogues with ASEM Heads of States and Governments led by ASEFYLS4 representatives. 

  • Youth Summit

The Youth Summit will take place in conjunction with the 13th ASEM Summit in Cambodia. Youth will have the opportunity to deepen their networks and conversations, and also prepare an ASEM Youth Declaration that will be presented by ASEFYLS4 participants at the Opening Ceremony of the 13th ASEM Summit to the ASEM Leaders. Engagement with ASEM Leaders and their Delegations are planned.

  • Leadership in Action

During this phase, participants will turn theory into action and jointly work on 15 impactful, community projects on the Sustainable Development Goals across ASEM.


Raluca will join the activities focused on developing a well-being platform that is relevant for SDG 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages and for our department of sustainability, where one direction is health and wellbeing. Through the sustainability policy, we want to apply the principles of health and wellbeing in our activities. The aim is to promote and encourage people within the organization that they are part of to focus on their health and well-being by finding and keeping the balance between work and personal life. 

Our principles are to:

  • Promote and develop a culture of trust, transparency and integrity within the organization and create an environment where people can feel safe and productive.
  • Create an atmosphere of healthiness within the activities developed by GEYC

In March 2013 we celebrated GEYC13 Anniversary
