ABYA LEAPS Demo Day 2022

Technology presents many opportunities for ASEAN countries to grow. Yet, it poses challenges such as people and businesses lagging behind the digital push. In light of these, we naturally become curious: why is digitalisation relevant to us? What are new technological trends which we could benefit from? And how could we create solutions to overcome digitalisation barriers?

By joining this event, you can look forward to learning more about transforming the digital landscape in ASEAN and networking opportunities.

Charting a Singapore Just Transition: An Energy CoLab Community Conference

As the world seeks to meet net-zero emission targets, the concept of β€œjust transitions” has emerged to address the social impacts and concerns of energy transition and decarbonisation pathways.

With Singapore aiming to be net-zero in 2050 we ask: what would a just energy transition look like in Singapore & SEA? How do we articulate local, place-based visions and policies to make our own transition to a net-zero society just?

Less is More | The Nature Book Club

Although the world has finally awakened to the reality of the climate crisis and ecological collapse, we continue to see proposed solutions that perpetuate the existing system of pro-growth capitalism. Instead of changing structural causes, the solutions revolve around utilizing technological innovations to spur more economic green growth. But what if these solutions (defined as green capitalism) do not work nor deliver as promised?

We invite you to join us for this session as we discuss the criticisms of green capitalism and explore the possibilities of a post-capitalist future from the degrowth
