While the ASIA PACIFIC LEADERS SUMMIT has already taken place in several locations worldwide, it will be the first one in Nepal in November 30 2016 to December 4 2016 in Dhulikhel Lodge Resort. APLS brings in young leaders from 24 countries together across Asia Pacific and opens a conversation between a cross section of youth, development professionals and business leaders with the intention of inciting social change. The main objective of the program is to become a touch point between LCP (Local Committee President) current and Elect of AP(Asia Pacific) and AIESEC International which will help them plan, what to vision and how to execute their plans and how to shape their Local Committee in align with AIESEC 2020.
Among those 5 days, November 30 is the prime day for APLS, because of YOUTH SPEAK FORUM. The Youth Speak Forum is the place where youths will gather and engage in discussing about the results of the survey and facilitate to develop a project they want to work on to have an impact on their societies. Linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that the UN has formulated and, aims to achieve until the year 2030, the Youth Speak Forum is a unique way to give the youth not only a power to the voice — but also the chance to act. The initiative Youth for Global Goals which is powered by AIESEC, aims to achieve the leadership potential of young people around the world by engaging and mobilizing them through purposeful and cross-cultural projects around the globe. All projects are designed to support the implementation of the SDGs.
The main topic for the Youth Speak Forum will be based on the theme of SDG’s: Quality education, Gender equality. The Speakers are:
