The Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) Undergraduate Leaders’ Program (ULP) is now accepting applications. With the theme, “Sahaya: Science and Arts Harnessing the Youth’s Advocacies”, this year’s ULP will be hosted by the University of the Philippines (https://www.up.edu.ph) from 18 - 29 October 2021.
Sahaya means light and hope in the Tausug language of the Philippines, and we envision that through ULP 2021 youth leaders of the Asia-Pacific will uphold and embrace interdisciplinary, people-centered, and environmentally sustainable approaches and solutions to meet emerging challenges in the Asia-Pacific in an increasingly globalized world.
ULP 2021 will immerse youth leaders to the challenges of a developing country in the Asia-Pacific through a 12-day program of virtual lectures and workshops with proactive and interactive sessions on creativity, innovation, and empowerment together with local and international experts from the fields of Science and the Arts.
