Event description
This Year’s Cohort of Gen A Fellows Presents Its View on Asia and the World.

About this event

There are questions that every generation has to find answers to, asking themselves anew: Where are we heading? How? And why? But these questions are not always the same. And it seems they have gotten more and more complicated in recent years, not only because of the global pandemic.

Asia Society Switzerland is engaging the next generation of the Asia-curious in Switzerland because we believe that it is important to ask these questions early – and with our mission to increase Asia Competence in mind. Asia Society Switzerland fosters knowledge and understanding of Asia and Asian issues, by analyzing the big changes underway in Asia and their impact on us, and by showcasing the views and thinking of Asian countries, societies, and governments – accurately, but not uncritically.

We are proud to announce the first Gen A Conference, conceptualized and executed by this year’s cohort of fellows. Join us and learn about the questions that will shape our future.
