A Biology senior from the College of Arts and Sciences is set to represent the country to the 3rd ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Foundation Model ASEAN Meeting to be held September 24 to October 1 in Manila.
Ivan Christopher B. Cordevilla will join a group of 7 youth leaders, led by an adviser, for a simulation meeting, patterned after how ASEAN countries come up with decisions and declarations.
During the said simulation meeting, the youth leaders from the different ASEAN countries will serve as foreign ministers, ministerial representatives, and prime ministers.
The Model ASEAN Meeting is one of the highlights of this year’s celebration of the 50th founding anniversary of the ASEAN. Most of the celebrations are held in Manila due to the fact that currently, the Philippine president is the chair of the said organization.
