The 21st century is a century in which we have to expose and develop our youth, not only as youth who have professional skills through internship competency and experience, but also the heart and feeling of wanting to give back to communities as well. That will really enrich the relationship and cultural know-how between the youth and communities across ASEAN.''

Does it have to be an ”either or” situation between the various identities? Couldn’t one have all? With each enriching the other? And contributing to the richness of multicultural diversity in the nation, and region?

ASEAN Youth Volunteer Programme (AYVP) Evaluation, Impact and Planning Workshop 27th - 28th January, 2014 Volunteers in Mersing implemented community-based recycling programmes that benefited three different local villages. One group decided to construct with their hands a ten‐foot buy-back centre. It served not only as an ecofriendly intervention to open burning practices, but also a new source of income for many of the locals. “Previously, especially during public holidays, there was a lot of trash around the beach. But after the AYVP participants built the collection centre and put the brochures on the beach table, there have been less trash at the beach area nowadays.” Saran@AsiaEngage@UKM - Resort Manager

ASEAN Youth Volunteer Programme (AYVP) Evaluation, Impact and Planning Workshop 27th - 28th January, 2014 Discussion on the Programme’s Impact and Recommendations Impact for the Development of ASEAN Identity Source: Post-Programme ASEAN Awareness Survey The volunteers had a basic understanding of what ASEAN is prior to the programme. They were all familiar with the 10 member states, and aware of ASEAN integration in 2015. After 5 weeks in AYVP, “regional identity” became more evident, as well as the need to strengthen shared virtues and values. Many noted the shared cultures of Southeast Asian peoples i.e. appearance, food, customs, etc., with diversity of languages, religions, etc. ASEAN was also seen as a player in bridging peoples who live together in 1 region to work collaboratively towards forming one ASEAN community. Common social issues were identified such as environment preservation, and public sanitation – issues that are easily solved with collective efforts. To quote an Eco-Leader, “Most of the countries in ASEAN faced similar issues, by coming together, we can better solve the issues together.” Saran@AsiaEngage@UKM

I never thought of myself as ASEAN. But AYVP provided a platform for us to network, so we can achieve that ASEAN Spring that Prof Saran was talking about. I come from an environmental background, but what I learned was mostly about POLICY. Here, I learned a lot of good environmental PRACTICES” - Ty Keithya Oung (Cambodia) “Before AYVP, I just know ASEAN as an alliance of countries in South East Asia. I could not feel the togetherness. But then after the sessions on ASEAN and ASEAN identity, I got the message. Although we are different, but we share some similarities that make us ASEAN” – Sri Rizki (Indonesia) Saran@AsiaEngage@UKM

ASEAN Youth Eco-Leadership What does being an ASEAN youth leader mean to you - after the programme? “I’ve learnt leadership that gave me new thoughts about bridging communities to a better place. The communities could be many things: villagers, students, families etc. As I started to believe that being chosen as eco-leader I kept bearing in mind that I, at the same time, have been given a big responsibility to actually become one of agent of changes who can lead and share the experience I have got so that others could also be inspired and do something more for people.” “Being an ASEAN youth leader means a person who embraces his/her identity. Someone who’s aware of issues plaguing his/her country and the region as a whole, has solutions to propose and is Saran@AsiaEngage@UKM willing to act on them.” – Hannah , Philippines

I want to look for my passion in life. After 5 weeks, I can say that AYVP was a really good opportunity for me to understand how NGOs work. I think I already found my calling – for the environment. - Tu, Vietnam I was lucky to bump into the founders of the start-up, Recovr Resources. It was quite serendipitous that I became part of the Mersing group in AYVP with the Recycling Project. Now I moved to the marketing world to start helping this take root as its Director. - Atiqah, Malaysia Saran@AsiaEngage@UKM 57

We need to help when our neighbor has a problem. I thought of my Setiu family members, especially Sonny, Ace, and Anj. We are all interconnected. We are ASEAN, we are family. I'm thankful for my AYVP experience. It has shaped me to become a better person.” Saran@AsiaEngage@UKM
