Third ASEAN FOUNDATION MODEL ASEAN MEETING 2017
(3rd AFMAM 2017)

"Thematic Area: Anticipating Environmental Displacement of People in ASEAN due to Global Climate Change”


What?

The ASEAN Foundation is organising its Third ASEAN Foundation Model ASEAN Meeting 2017 (3rd AFMAM 2017) to coincide with the 31st ASEAN Summit in the Philippines. The ASEAN Foundation is the people’s arm of ASEAN and is mandated by the ASEAN Charter to support the Secretary-General of ASEAN in supporting the ASEAN Community building process.

The 3rd AFMAM 2017 promises an authentic experience to understand ASEAN. It is an interactive process where YOU, the students, will role-play a senior official of an ASEAN meeting and simulate how an ASEAN senior official engages in various ASEAN meetings. You will understand how ASEAN as an inter-governmental system works and will learn about the decision-making process to understand how regional agreements and cooperation are cultivated. It will be an interesting and enjoyable experience!
