The current global pandemic challenges our personal values, our living condition and our approach to reporting on a wide range of issues. At the same time, modern technology enables us to communicate across borders without physically crossing borders.
With the ongoing online series 'Asia Talks', we would like to take advantage of these opportunities and make a small contribution to increase the quality and quantity of exchanging fact-based information across borders and disciplines. Twice 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 have the opportunity to enrich the Asia Talks with new topics as well as contributions on current regional developments and thus further promote the exchange across borders.
