The UNEP TUNZA South East Asia Youth Environment Network (SEAYEN) was jointly set up in 2006 by the UNEP Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, Bayer and the National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA) Council in Singapore as part of UNEP’s global strategy for engaging youth in environmental issues. The NYAA Council hosts the SEAYEN Secretariat and helps to coordinate youth environmental activities within the region. The network unites youth leaders from Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. The number of members in each country ranges from 60 to 100.
SEAYEN empowers youths to develop programmes and initiatives to address socio-economic and environmental issues in collaboration with other youth networks. It also provides a platform for youth to share experiences, stimulate cross-cultural and international action, and participate in regional decision-making.
