[WEBCAST] Disruptive Asia | Sustaining Asia’s Economic Growth: Why we need to find a path to a low-carbon futureVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Is Asia’s economic rise sustainable? Can Asia maintain its rate of economic development and reduce its carbon emissions?
As the world’s fastest developing region, Asia’s economies are growing at an extraordinary rate with Australia a direct beneficiary. But as the region’s economic rise accelerates, so too does its demand for energy supply, increasing carbon and greenhouse gas emissions. Join Director of Asia-Pacific Sustainability at the Asia Society Policy Institute, Alistair Ritchie, in-conversation with Advance Queensland Fellow at the University of Queensland, Dr Lynette Molyneux, and Chief Operations Officer, Mineral Carbonation International, Sophia Hamblin Wang, as they explore opportunities to navigate these simultaneous trends and ensure economic and environmental sustainability in the region long term.
This discussion will be the first in a series exploring the Sustainability Edition of Asia Society Australia’s Disruptive Asia project, a major thought-leadership initiative that looks at how Asia’s rise is impacting Australia’s foreign policy, economy and society and how Australia should respond. In 2020, we ask if Asia’s rise is sustainable – environmentally, economically and socially?
Date: Tuesday 26 May 2020
Time: 3:00 - 3:45 p.m.
Please note this event will run as a webcast only and is open to the public. Registration is essential. For any enquiries, please contact email@example.com.
About our Speakers
Disruptive Asia is a thought-leadership project by Asia Society Australia launched in 2017. It presents – through long-form essays – new perspectives and policy recommendations on how Asia’s rise is impacting Australia’s foreign policy, economy and society and how Australia should respond. Disruptive Asia deliberately looks at both external aspects of Australia’s relationship with Asia (foreign policy, business connectivity, international education) and their domestic implications and manifestations (community relations, leadership diversity, education settings and capabilities).
Asia Society Australia acknowledges the support of the Victorian Government.
