Self-Video Contest
The Self-Video Contest hopes to create awareness of water issues by sending a short message generated by young people among ASEAN countries. For the greatest impact, we chose the medium of video to send the message via social media.
Contestants must be from one of the ASEAN countries and be under 25 years old. They will use their own means such as a video camera or even smartphone camera to capture a video up to 1 minute long containing a message on a water issue (either a problem or a solution). The message can be in English or your native language, and be sure to include subtitles.
All videos must be submitted by November 30.
After the competition, we plan to compile all the messages from young people from the ASEAN countries to make a video that brings your voices out to the mass.
Check out some examples in the video below:
Voting and Evaluation
All videos will be promoted by contestants for online voting on a platform that will be provided after the submission deadline.

The Great ASEAN Eco-Debates
The Great ASEAN Eco-Debates is an effort to bring great young minds of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) together for meaningful discussions and to generate solutions to pressing environmental issues. It also gives the ASEAN a venue to collaborate and forward its environmental concerns to the global community and aims to encourage the development of more environmentalists.
The project aims to establish an inter-ASEAN collegiate Asian Parliamentary debate competition that focuses on current environmental issues and solutions. The ASEAN and their corresponding environmental sectors and various environmental NGOs will be involved to interact with participants and conduct environmental seminars during the competition.
Read a more detailed project outline HERE.
The expected outcomes of the Great ASEAN Eco-Debates are:
  • Increased Environmental Awareness
  • Formulation of Organic, Youth-oriented Solutions
  • A Whole Catalog of Innovative Ideas
  • Stronger International Relations
  • Heightened Value of Critical Thinking
Registration will be open before the end of 2013 and the competition itself is planned to be held in April 2014.
