In support of the APEC Voices of the Future project, the Centres of Asia-Pacific Excellence are hosting a webinar, Working towards our sustainable and equitable future in the Asia-Pacific, featuring three top academics in their field from around Aotearoa New Zealand in discussion with tertiary students on how we can build a sustainable, inclusive, and equitable future for the Asia-Pacific.
The academics panel will be paired with students in the discussion, with each pair focusing on the theme as it relates to Aotearoa New Zealand and North Asia, Southeast Asia, or Latin America.
