🌍The 75th Anniversary of the UN, and end of World War II, marks a historical occasion for peace and security. Forged by the solidarity of our “Founding Fathers,” the next generation of ASEAN public servants and peacebuilders play a crucial role in shaping the region we want.

📍On #ASEANDay regional youth organizations will come together, Asian Youth Peace Network, ASEAN Youth Organization and ASEAN Youth Forum, to build a coalition of youth councils, advisory boards, parliamentarians, political parties, young people in decision making spaces, and young peacebuilders across the region on August 8, 2020.

“The dots represents each and every one of us and we are all intertwined in between these statements. The organic patterns represent growth as just like this session we are having. There is growth through the conversations we are sharing, growth through the information of exchange and growth through the solidarity of connection we have from one another.”

Key principles that the organizers and partners discussed were:
📍decolozing regionalism
📍meaningful youth engagement
📍positive peace
📍diversity and inclusion, and many other driving forces of ASEAN #Solidarity
