EASYNET Youth Week Celebration

3rd week of October

Every year, the EASYNET member organization commits itself to celebrating the “Youth Week” which aims to bring the young people of EASYNet member movement and partner organizations to come together to reflect on issues affecting the lives of young people and to discern its Christian praxis. It is also a time to collectively celebrate our youthful journey, blessings and solidarity. In recent decades, EASYNet Week is more popularly known as Asia Youth Week (AYW) Celebration among CCA Youth (NCC Youth). However after ASYG 2000, CCA felt that AYW should be more “ecumenically” celebrated thus in 2001, the CCA and NCC youth have actively enjoined partner movements to join in the AYW celebration. In 2002, CCA officially turned over to EASYNet the initiatives of celebrating the Youth Week. In the last 5 years, EASYNet week is known as Asia Pacific Students and Youth Week (APSYW). This year we are launching the EASYNet Week this in the context of actively promoting the network among its member movement from the national leadership to its grassroots membership. The EASYNet Week can also be a venue for localized/grassroots celebration of “National Students and Youth Gathering.”
