More than 4000 students across the region will get acquainted with ASEAN when the ASEAN Schools Tour makes a stop in their home cities between June and December 2007.
At ten cities, officials from the ASEAN Secretariat and the governments of Member Countries will visit a secondary school to interact with students from the ages of 12 to 16 and engage them through various fun and interactive activities focused on ASEAN.
300 to 500 students are expected to participate at each stop. The programme will showcase the first-ever animated film on ASEAN, as well as the talents of the students through quizzes, creative arts contests and cultural performances.
The ASEAN Schools Tour is one of the commemorative activities held to mark ASEAN’s 40th anniversary in 2007.
