Applications are now open for SEASAT Youth Camp 2020 Program Application for Asia Youths.
The second SEASAT Youth Camp emphasizes on the role women and gender issues play in contemporary society. After undergoing years of lobbying for inclusive policies, women and other marginalized members of society are beginning to break through barriers erected by outmoded social thinking.
With this year’s theme, “Diverse. Empowered. Inclusive.,” the 2020 SEASAT Youth Camp will bring together 50 promising Asian youths who share the ideals of continuing the progressive momentum for women and gender issues.
In collaboration with the American Institute in Taiwan, the 4-day camp, will expose participants to women and gender issues through seminars, workshops, educational tours, as well as a crash course on basic leadership. The Camp also doubles as a networking platform to further connect the SEASAT Youth.
