Description:
A Mansfield Center Brown Bag Lecture.

Speakers: Asian Fellows in the Young Southeast Asian Initiative on Global on Environmental Issues. A special offering of the U.S. Department of State.

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) as well as the 40th anniversary of U.S.-ASEAN relations. As climate change impacts begin to transform the region's weather, food security, and economic growth, it is increasingly clear that addressing these issues requires regional cooperation. Southeast Asian Fellows studying environmental issues in the U.S. will share their perspectives on how climate change is impacting their countries and what steps the region needs to take to build a better future for all. They will also comment on the global nature of these issues as evidenced during their Montana study.

Launched in 2013, the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) is the United States' signature program to strengthen leadership development and networking in Southeast Asia. YSEALI seeks to build the leadership capabilities of youth in the region, strengthen ties between the United States and Southeast Asia, promote regional collaboration on problems, and nurture an ASEAN community. Our Fellows represent Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Singapore, and the Philippines.
