Asia-Europe: open call for Young Urban Leaders Dialogue

Call for Applications for the 2nd Asia-Europe Young Urban Leaders Dialogue (AEYULD) is now open.

This year’s theme is on “Urban Design in Cities of the Future,” and will be held on 26-29 July 2010, in Shanghai, China.

In close partnership with Madrid Global (International Strategy and Action Office of Madrid’s City Council), Casa Asia, Shanghai People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (SPAFFC) and the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies (SIIS) – the 2nd AEYULD is envisaged to make a strong impact, as it happens under the framework of the Shanghai World Expo 2010.

The programme aims to gather up to forty (40) forward-looking, young professionals, who are based in capitals or major cities from all ASEM member countries. In pursuit of as much diversity as possible, this invitation is open to all institutional representatives from any field of expertise (e.g. public administration, business, academia, arts, politics, media, etc.) between 25 to 35 years old. Together with guest-speakers and experts in the fields of Urban Development and Technology, the participants will actively engage in the creation of networks and contacts among emerging young leaders and professionals from the main urban settlements in both regions.

Accommodation and meals will be covered by the organisers. A 50% travel subsidy capped at 500 Euros will be provided for participants coming from Europe and 250 Euros for participants coming from Asia. Participants residing in China are not eligible for any travel subsidy. Further information about the programme, and the online application form may be found on our ASEF website.
