The ASEAN University Network’s thematic network for University Social Responsibility & Sustainability was endorsed in July 2011, as an enabling mechanism to achieve greater regional cooperation amongst the higher education institutions in ASEAN, to contribute to the social, economic and environmental development of the region.

The proposal to establish the ASEAN Youth Volunteers Programme (AYVP) was presented during the ASEAN Senior Officials Meeting on Youth (SOMY) in Hanoi, Vietnam on 18 October 2011, endorsed by the Minister of Youth and Sports, Dato’ Sri Ahmad Shabery Cheek during the Seventh ASEAN Ministerial Meeting on Youth (AMMY VII) on 20 October 2011 and approved by the Malaysian Cabinet on 20 April 2012
