ASEAN CSR Fellowship: Class of 2017

ACN launched its inaugural ASEAN CSR Fellowship on 9 Jan 2017. This programme aims to deepen cross-border perspectives and build up the next generation of CSR leaders for responsible business in Southeast Asia, harnessing their potential to address key regional issues in business & anti-corruption, business & human rights,  and food security & sustainable agriculture. 16 Fellows were selected from 8 ASEAN countries to participate in a series of study tours to meet business leaders, government officials, academics, and civil society practitioners. This programme began in Singapore from 9 to 13 Jan 2017, and will be followed by visits to 3 other ASEAN countries in April, July and November, concluding with a Capstone Project which the Fellows can implement in their respective countries with the newfound knowledge and network.

Fellows were partially sponsored with the support of the Government of Sweden and the National Youth Council Singapore.

A total of 16 Fellows from 8 ASEAN countries (Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam) have been selected for the year-long Fellowship. They range from CSR managers from MNCs to land rights activists at NGOs.
