European Deaf Association role for Áine

In less than 2 weeks our alumna and Oxford graduate Áine Jackson will be representing the UK's British Deaf Association at the Asia-Europe Foundation Summer University #ASEFSU21. 

She has been asked to create and share her video in advance which you can find on our Facebook page.

The ASEFSU is designed to foster cross-cultural exchanges and networks among young people, it offers opportunities for students and young professionals to broaden their horizons, deepen their knowledge on contemporary issues, and propose concrete solutions to societal challenges. 

ASEFSU21 will be conducted under the theme "Youth with Disabilities: Shaping Inclusive ASEM Societies" and it consists of a mix of practical team exercises, thought-provoking lectures, group research and experiential learning. Participants will develop a strong understanding for the issues faced by young people with disabilities and become active ambassadors for open and inclusive ASEM societies.
