Titled “Today’s Youth for Tomorrow’s World”, the competition allowed youths from ASEAN member countries to play a key role in tackling today’s social issues in the region and help create positive change for a better future.

This is the second consecutive year that ASEAN DSE was organized across all 10 ASEAN member states as part of the strategic partnership between the ASEAN Foundation and SAP.

By using the SAP Analytics Cloud, participants were encouraged to deliver data-driven insights which highlight issues in ASEAN across six United Nation Sustainable Development Goals, namely (1) good health and well-being, (2) quality education, (3) gender equality, (4) decent work and economic growth, (5) industry, innovation & infrastructure and (6) sustainable cities and communities.
