The ASEAN + Children Festival 2016, for youth ages 13-17, and mentors, aged 18 and up, focused on helping delegates set a path toward sustainable freedom. Based on the WOW, internationally renowned Sustainable Dynamics framework, it was a human-centered, design experience that connected youth to themselves, one another, their communities, and the planet.

There were over 100 participants representing Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Bangladesh, Singapore, Thailand, Viet Nam, Korea, Australia, the UK and the USA. Mario was the oldest mentor (and a co-facilitator for sections of the Festival) and is pictured here with the Festival’s youngest participant, 13-year old Raad, from Bangladesh.
