The 2nd online Assembly Planning Committee (APC) meeting was held on October 18, 2022. The APC decided on the theme for the 21st General Assembly as “Journeying Together As A Resilient Community: Transforming Lives Through Vision 2030”.

The APAY affirms the Vision 2030 and is committed to translating the vision into reality in the Asia Pacific context. The 20th YMCA World Council adopted a Movement-wide Vision 2030 consisting of one collective vision and mission statement, four collective priority action areas: community well-being, meaningful work, sustainable planet, and just world and 12 collective goals to turn the priorities into action at the YMCA, the community and the global level. The 21st GA of the APAY is a significant platform for the Asia Pacific region to have meaningful discourse in integrating and implementing Vision 2030 in a diverse grassroots context through our actions.

Around 400 delegates from different parts of the Asia Pacific and the global partners will gather at the Hyatt Regency, Chennai, India, from September 15-20, 2023. The 5th Youth Assembly will bring 150 youths from September 13-15, 2023, to the YMCA International Youth Centre, Chennai. Simultaneously the 1st Gender Equity Forum will be held from September 13-15, 2023, at the YWCA International Guest House, Chennai. The APC also finalised the GA Committee members and the related secretaries for the concerned committees.

APAY is thankful to the NCY India and the Madras YMCA who have kindly agreed to co-host the 21st General Assembly along with their financial contribution to the GA. The APC is preparing to meet in person in Chennai, India, from January 6-9, 2023.
