With the ongoing online series 'Asia Talks', we would like to make a small contribution to increase the quality and quantity of exchanging fact-based information across borders and disciplines. Once a month, the series focuses on a relevant topic, such as the future of work, gender issues, the influence of art on the education for sustainable development, a greener fashion industry, new concepts for mobility and transportation, the influence of the media on societal change and many other topics.
Alumni of the Asia Programme are always welcome to enrich the Asia Talks with their national topics as well as contributions on current regional developments and thus further promote the exchange across borders. Please contact us if you would like to suggest a topic or would like to present an Asia Talk yourself. We will then provide the logistical support.

Join us for November's Asia Dialogue AND interactive workshop on:
Achieving climate goals through gender equality
Right post-COP 26 we will discuss climate change through an interdisciplinary lens that incorporates many of the SDGs and strongly focuses on gender equality initiatives in the workplace.
Our experts will address the cross-border challenges we face in achieving the goals around the world and explore initiatives that address this challenge through a gender equality lens.
In plenum and break-out rooms we will try to identify opportunities and examine how to catalyse global movements. We’ll critically look at how different governments affect policies and outcomes of their strategies. Join us for this 90-minute session full of input and food for thought.
The webinar will be streamed via Zoom. If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com
