ASEAN Youth Movement Vol.02
ASEAN Youth Movement is a space for youth activists, students, NGOs, entrepreneurs and youth allies (to name a few types of participants) to come together, share their experiences and support each other’s efforts for a better society. We are not an organization – we are trying to create a communication network, which can bring together organizations, networks, groups or clubs interested in connecting with others and exchanging information.
We call ourselves a movement because many of our participants are activists – actively participating in society, working in community development, politics, the environment, human rights and many other
issues. The most important thing is that we are all active youth, and when we come together, we believe that we can call ourselves a movement. We aim to bring youth together and support our friends’ efforts for social change through youth-driven media and communication.
We have organized the ASEAN Youth Movement and plan to continue with seasonal newsletters to represent the activities and ideas of youth in many different ASEAN countries. Human Rights, the environment, health, gender and social justice are all issues we continue to support and help publicize throughout ASEAN. We are working based on youth volunteerism and grassroots energy, and hope for our movement for a better region to continue rising!
