We’re really looking forward to next week’s webinar: Working towards our sustainable and equitable future in the Asia-Pacific, which we’re hosting with our fellow CAPEs Southeast Asia Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence and Latin America Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence. We want to introduce you to the academic who will be representing the North Asia CAPE.
Professor Chellie Spiller, from the The University of Waikato, will speak on the intercultural, human dimension of moving toward a sustainable Asia-Pacific, including drawing from indigenous wisdom, the common ground between different countries and cultures, and the need to consider social justice and equity in any solutions we develop.
