The ASEAN-Korea youth delegates were invited to take part in this activity by developing their own agenda for implementing the recommendations in their daily lives. Applicants have to submit the Good AKtion Challenge agenda, which covers five topics under the theme "Inclusion and Integration for the ASEAN-Korea Community" and is based on the recommendation, including:   1) Carbon Neutrality; 2) Changes in lives after COVID-19; 3) Different socioeconomic classes and status; 4) Digital Inclusion; and 5) Gender Sensitivity.

Selected applicants must carry out their Good AKtion Challenge projects between October 21 and November 7, 2021. From among the 15 best projects chosen to participate in this activity, seven individual and team participants have been awarded the prizes for their best efforts in translating the recommendation into practical good actions at the Good AKtion Challenge Online Award Ceremony on 13 November 2021.
