25th Asia Pacific Youth Conference (APYC)

“Global Citizenship for the 21st Century – Building A Future for All”

Saturday, 8. August 2020 - 17:00 to Saturday, 15. August 2020 - 15:30


The 25th Asia Pacific Youth Conference in 2020 is cancelled.


The 25th Asia Pacific Youth Conference, originally scheduled for summer 2020 in Taiwan, has been cancelled in light of the ongoing situation of the Covid-19 pandemic. The 25th APYC will be rescheduled for an appropriate time in 2021.

The organiser Initiatives of Change Taiwan reached this decision after having been closely monitoring the latest development of the pandemic and its implications for the health and safety of participants and other stakeholders of the conference. IofC Taiwan would like to thank individuals and institutions, both local and international, that have offered or pledged support for this event.

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic is a stark reminder of the interconnectedness and interdependence of our societies as well as a solemn call for human solidarity. In this sense Global Citizenship is more relevant than ever as everyone can and do have a part. This global crisis also opens opportunities for positive changes that might have been otherwise impossible, we can choose to respond in our own ways, with love, creativity and courage.

Though separated for the time being, we can make a difference together.
