[Event]Hanyang University Holds ‘APYE Korea,’ the 3rd Asia·Pacific Youth Exchange Program

Hanyang University, which has recently stepped forward as a worldwide social innovation leading university with the recent joining of Ashoka University, opened the Asia Pacific Youth Exchange (APYE). The purpose of this program was to cultivate future youth leaders who will achieve ‘sustainable development of the Asia Pacific region’. The international event co-hosted by Hanyang University, ADB (Asian Development Bank), UNDP (United Nations Development Programme), and the UYA (Urban Youth Academy) was in progress from August 18th to the 27th. The APYE program consists of three stages that include leadership development training, field survey, and symposium. It is a program in which participants personally experience the social problems of a relevant region, seek a solution by communicating with the persons concerned, and debate the resolution. Around 180 youths from 20 countries participate in the APYE program to grow social innovative capabilities by thoroughly examining the five social issues in Seoul, which include the education gap of multicultural families, trash recycling in the city, wrap around care service, the information gap of the disabled, the revitalization of traditional markets, and, finally, drawing ideas to solve these five issues. The ideas to resolve these social problems produced by this APYE program will be developed and progressed into a viable project after passing the three-track course of design thinking, social venture, and digital communication of ‘Youth Impact for SDGs’ that Hanyang University and the Seoul District are promoting together. Meanwhile, Hanyang University has fostered around 10 social ventures from 2016 that Hanyang University students and local young people from the Philippines, Nepal, and India operated together in order to help realize the ideas from the APYE program.
