The ASEAN Youth Science Summit (AYSS) is a complementary activity of the ASEAN Science and Technology Week Celebration in Manila that will involve the science-inclined youth of other nations, specifically those coming from the ASEAN-member nations and eight dialogue partner countries. The AYSS is a gathering of the youth from the said countries for the purpose of providing a venue for the next leaders of regional S&T development to discuss relevant scientific and global issues, with the end view of promoting peaceful agreements among Southeast Asian nations.

The Summit will also orient the ASEAN youth and those of other participating countries on the diplomatic and parliamentary ways of handling problems that affect nations on a regional as well as global scale. It will bring together students to raise their awareness on the global, regional and national issues that are presently affecting the Southeast Asian region and the world.

Specifically, the Summit aims to: 1) empower the students to plan for their future with the end view of using science and technology to harness the region’s natural resources wisely; 2) serve as a venue to discuss the need to act, with resolve and urgency, on the global and regional issues affecting present and future generations; 3) enhance cooperation, networking and coordination among the youth towards greater involvement in issues of regional and global concern; and 4) entice the youth to be more reflexive and aware of their capacity to act on present as well as future problems and solicit their commitment and participation towards addressing such problems, now and in the future.
