Asia Solidarity Lab

Sow hope, reap solidarity.

27-28 August 2022


The Asia Solidarity Lab 2022 is a gathering of youth organizers, campaigners, and activists 40 years old and below to uplift emerging campaigns, powerful storytelling, and transformative joyful organizing in the region towards climate justice. Alongside key partners and allies, and on top of cultural performances and open spaces to gather and reflect together on co-creating our future together, the ASL will be home to 4 plenary panels and 9 parallel learning sessions exploring four key themes:

Activism and community care

Intersectional climate organizing

Fossil fuel finance campaigning

Reimagination + solutions towards climate and social justice

The event builds on the success not only of last year’s Asia Solidarity Lab, but also the Global Just Recovery Gathering, and the previous Asia Climate Leadership Camps. Besides longtime collaborators, we hope this event will be accessible to people outside movements who might not necessarily call themselves “activists” just yet. Together, we will work together for a vision that is truly inclusive and intersectional.


This year, how do we strengthen the youth climate movement towards a #FossilFreeAsia to be regenerative, intersectional, and centered on care and solidarity amidst and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic?

The Asia Solidarity Lab is an opportunity for youth activists, leaders, and communities in Asia to come together as one movement to put people and planet at the heart of post-pandemic action.

During the Asia Solidarity Lab, there will be:


Our panels will be an opportunity to reflect on movement-building in face of economic and environmental shocks. How do we come out of these stronger together, with visions for the future that take guidance from workers, vulnerable communities, frontliners and the youth?
