Youth Mobility Index 2018

DOTASIA RELEASES ITS FINDINGS FOR YOUTH MOBILITY INDEX REPORT IN ASIA

 

Hong Kong Leads Asia in Entrepreneurship Mobility, says Youth Mobility Index

To commemorate its 10th year anniversary, operator of the ‘.Asia’ regional top-level-domain, today released its first annual ‘Youth Mobility Index (YMI.Asia)’ report. YMI.Asia aims to measure the social, geo-physical and digital mobility of younger generations across Asia to better support young Asian entrepreneurs setting out to change the world.

Hong Kong, one of the world’s leading financial centres, ranks #1 in several areas including Startup Momentum, reveals DotAsia’s Youth Mobility Index. What sets Hong Kong apart from the rest is its independent and free startup culture and the entrepreneurship ecosystem it fosters. This is clearly reflected in YMI.Asia, which places Hong Kong #2 in overall rankings, right after Singapore. In spite of its economic success, Hong Kong is left at the very bottom of the Cost-Happiness Performance ranking.  Why is this so? A recent survey done by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University’s Department of Applied Social Science suggests costly and crowded housing market maybe one of the reason why local youth are less happy than their regional counter parts.

Meet our new class of NetMission Ambassadors 2017-2018!  

A Mission Board was created to capture and record these enthusiastic minds who cannot wait to make an impact !

 

Congratulate to 21 new faces joining NetMission this year after a comprehensive selection process. These 21 young ambassadors come from a diverse background with various level and fields of studies. Among the group, we are excited to see also the cultural diversity where students from Taiwan, Philippines, India and Estonia are selected apart from the Hong Kong ones. In the upcoming

year, they will uphold the mission of empowering youth in Asia on the Internet Governance discussion.

A highlight of the selection process was the Start-up Ideas Challenge Day which candidates are asked to give a one-minute pitch with the theme “Start a sustainable initiative to mobilize stakeholders in Asia to address an Internet Governance issue that you are concerned about”. Interesting initiatives come out from the follow-on group discussions on the selected pitches such as a reality TV show with celebrities to experience digital divide by going to remote islands.

Embarking their journey with tremendous passion, the ambassadors shared their thoughts on what they want to achieve as a NetMission Ambassador at our orientation night on 1 Dec. Ideas such as online videos, high school education, awareness raising on cyber-security and privacy emerged.

More upcoming activities ahead in 2018. Please stay tune with us and greet our new ambassadors on our Instagram (http://igf.asia/nmaIG) with the hashtag #HelloNMAs.
