2021 ASEAN-Korea Youth Summit: Inclusion and Integration for the ASEAN-Korea Community
The Ministry of Gender Equality and Family (MOGEF), ROK, in collaboration with the National Council of Youth Organizations in Korea (NCYOK) and the AUN Secretariat, held the online ASEAN-Korea Youth Summit with the theme “Inclusion and Integration for the ASEAN-Korea Community” from August 10 to 13, 2021.

Despite the regional and global negative impacts of the Covid-19 epidemic, the summit brings together 100 student representatives from the ASEAN member states including Laos, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Brunei, the Philippines, Cambodia, Malaysia, Vietnam; and the Republic of Korea. Ten Vietnamese delegates, including 3 from VNU, 4 from VNU HCM and 3 from Can Tho University, enthusiastically participated in the discussions and actively contributed to the summit’s sessions.

The delegates were divided into 10 groups for exchanging views on issues centering around such common topics as “The Coexistence between Humans and Nature”, “The Development of an ‘Untact’ (Contact-free) Society”, among others. After the discussions, the groups presented their recommendations for improving the suggested issues.

At the ASEAN-Korea Youth Summit 2021, the student delegates from Southeast Asian countries and Korea, with different cultures, socio-economic conditions and religions, had the opportunity not only to virtually experience and share, thereby gaining knowledge about the indigenous culture in each country, but also, through joint activities, to understand and empathize with one another to expand cooperation and to build a sustainable youth network between ASEAN and Korea.
