Young ASEAN Leaders Policy Initiative (YALPI) 2021
What is YALPI and our plan for the YALPI 2021 forum?
▪️ Young ASEAN Leaders Policy Initiative (YALPI) is an international forum which gathers and empowers youths to solve current social problems from the bottom-up aspect.
▪️ Our theme for this year’s YALPI is “A Call for Youth Leadership: Tackling Social Inequalities in the Age of COVID-19.”
▪️ YALPI 2021 aims to alleviate social inequalities and injustices that have come into light during the COVID-19 outbreak by supporting research that has the potential to enable the development of locally-scaled projects.
