There are 38 national parks in ASEAN Member States dedicated as the ASEAN Heritage Parks.

With biodiversity as a grand theme, the ASEAN-EU youth competition is aimed at enhancing people-to-people connectivity among ASEAN Member States and engaging the youth as the agents of support for this important cause.
