Gen A Graduation Projects
A Selection of Outstanding Gen A Projects
In its mission to foster Asia Competence, Asia Society Switzerland is committed to empowering young voices in the dialogue with Asia, recognizing youth as a key driver of Switzerland’s future success in the region. As part of the Gen A Young Leadership Program, the fellows work on topics around Asia that they are curious about, that reflect the way they see our world, that they care for professionally and personally. Not only do we want to learn about these topics and from the young fellows, but also to share their views with our network and audiences.
As part of out flagship conference, STATE OF ASIA, Asia Society Switzerland provides these young voices a platform to present their projects to a high-level audience – be it on Korean webtoons and its growing markets; mapping the rights of sexual minorities in the region; or a rules-based order worthy of its name. Explore them all below!
