[ASK-Y] Session 3: Why is the Earth Sick?VIEW EVENT DETAILS
The New Disruptors: Climate and Environment
November 8, 2021 — Following our second session, "Why Are We Not Equal? | The New Disruptors: Gender and Equality," Asia Society Korea invites you to our third session of the Asia Society Korea Youth (ASK-Y) program on climate and equality to be held on November 8 at 12:00 PM KST.
The next in line of our biweekly discussions will be titled "Why is the Earth Sick? | The New Disruptors: Climate and Environment" as we probe the latest state of our global habitat and its stark warning that humanity's future could be filled with risk profiles.
But this future is not set in stone. Our concerted efforts to mitigate climate change could reverse trends, accelerate technological progress, and create geopolitical developments that drastically reduce our footprint. The world at the end of the 21st century could turn out to be radically different.
Asia Society Korea Executive Director Yvonne Kim invites Kate Clayton, Research Officer at La Trobe Asia, and Alistair Ritchie, Director of Asia-Pacific Sustainability at Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) to discuss the environment-sustainability nexus by examining why the climate is changing, and how we can prepare for the future.
The ASK-Y program is a public event and you can register for the event here.
