September 4 to 5, 2003
The Ecumenical Asia-Pacific Student and Youth Network Core Team Meeting was held in the UCCP Shalom Guesthouse, Manila on 4-5 September. Shin, regional secretary, represented the WSCF AP region.
The core team agreed to hold the 2nd National Coordinators Meeting to encourage local EASYNet groups to establish a firmer cooperation among them. It will be held on 8-16 January 2004 in Thailand. Peace building and conflict transformation, higher education and globalisation will be the main focus in the Meeting.
The core team also decided to hold ASYG 2004 (Asia-Pacific Student and Youth Gathering – 2004) as an EASYNet project. As emphasized in the previous ASYG 2000, the core team reaffirmed that the ASYG 2004 process should be initiated from local (national) level, and that it should be integrated into a regional gathering which would be held on first week of December 2004. They agreed that ASYG 2004 theme should be related with issues on peace. WSCF AP will send one student from each national movement to ASYG 2004.
