Theme:

On its 3rd year, the WYAAP Emerging Leaders Conference will focus on the theme “Strengthening the Family: Key to Asia Pacific Development”. The United Nations has declared 2014 as the International Year of the Family. WYA joins the international celebrations in order to examine the relationship between healthy families and the development and flourishing of societies and nations. The plenary sessions are set to discuss the challenges to the family as well as success stories and best practices for the protection and promotion of the family in policy and culture. In order to advocate for the protection of the family in policy and culture, young people need to clearly understand the crucial role families play in economic development and human flourishing. As the fundamental unit of society, the family provides an invaluable contribution to society and nations through the nurturing and education of children, and as a school of solidarity.
