Fire-Side Chat

The next generation of global leaders face an enormous challenge – the unemployment rate for young people is three times higher than it is for adults. The needs are even greater among low-income and minority youth who encounter even bigger hurdles accessing education, skills training opportunities and jobs. How can corporations help young people build skills, expand their networks and become career-ready through first jobs, internships, and leadership and entrepreneurship training?

Is Technology An Enabler Or Barrier For Equitable Education?

August 2nd 2022,

01:00 – 02:00PM SGT

Panel Discussion

The pandemic disrupted education of more than 760 million children across the region. National governments across Asia have been quick to implement remote learning – but it did not reach all children, especially the most marginalized. Mobile phones were primarily used as a medium for learning, as reach is high across the region. But with competition within family for screen time, high costs of data and the limitations of learning on a small screen coupled with limited skills for remote learning – the issues of equitable and accessible education continue to be significant. What are the key challenges, the innovations in place and the way forward?

Sustainable Food Systems – Interplay Of Community, Corporations And Civil Society

August 3rd 2022,

10:00 – 11:00AM SGT

Fire-side Chat

The target of a zero-hunger world by 2030 is under threat. Despite the promise of global leaders in 2015 to end hunger and poverty and to reduce inequality, hunger rates are on the rise again due to conflict, climate change and COVID. Asia and the Pacific is home to nearly half a billion undernourished people. Sustainable food systems need support from a vast range of stakeholders from the farmers to the final consumer, from governments to private sector to civil society. What are the challenges, best practices and innovations to a hunger-free world?

August 3rd 2022,

11:00 – 12:00PM SGT

Moderated Discussion

Climate change and disasters threaten the long-term sustainability of development in Asia.  The region has experienced a significant increase in the number, intensity, and impact of extreme weather events such as tropical cyclones, floods, droughts, and heat waves which have caused significant loss of lives and economic damage. Over the past five years’ disasters have led to damages more than $50bn.

How are corporations and civil society adapting to and enabling reversal in climate change trends?

The Great Resignation: Volunteerism And Re-engagement

August 3rd 2022,

01:00 – 02:00PM SGT

Moderated Discussion

The “great resignation” or “the big quit” has been an economic trend since early 2021 when employees have begun to voluntarily resign from their jobs en-masse due to various economic, social and psychological reasons. According the estimates, one in four in Asia are planning to leave their current job in 2022. As we become more socially conscious, corporate volunteering is becoming more and more popular. Integrated modelling of social and company values to uniformly fight for the greater good can reignite passion in the workplace and allow employees to find their own meaning. How to re-engage employees by creating volunteering opportunities for global good?
