This will be a one-day program of activities for the APRU-ULP participants focusing on the theme of “Youth Leadership, Policy and Governance” amidst emerging challenges in the Asia-Pacific. The program includes an icebreaker game, “pieces of a puzzle”, a short lecture on leadership, policy, and governance, a “Photo Fast Talk” creative panel discussion with multidisciplinary experts, and “Gaming the Future”, an interactive futures workshop. The program ends with a TEDxTalk by a youth leader representative.

The overall objective of the one-day virtual program is to provide participants basic knowledge and appreciation of leadership, policy and governance, through interdisciplinary, people-centered, and environmentally sustainable approaches in the context of emerging challenges in the Asia-Pacific in an increasingly globalized world.

At the end of the one-day program, the participants should be able to:

1. Explain key principles and frameworks on leadership, and policy and governance;
2. Describe emerging challenges in the Philippines and the pacific-rim region and the importance of interdisciplinary, people-centered, and environmentally sustainable approaches and solutions;
3. Discuss their role and capacity as leaders who can contribute to policy and governance in their home countries; and
4. Apply practical lessons on leadership, decision-making, coordination, and collaboration through the interactive workshop session.
