The HPAIR Harvard Conference brings together 300 attendees from the world’s top universities and 100 speakers to discuss the most pressing issues in the Asia-Pacific region.
Asia’s astounding growth over the past decade has not been without challenges. Solutions to sustainable development remain elusive; alarming human rights abuses against women, refugees, and the LGBTQ community remain unanswered; rising wealth inequality, catalyzed by globalization, remain unaddressed. The 2017 Harvard Conference will offer a platform to cooperatively confront these emerging challenges in Asia through dialogue and exchange that transcend geographical and cultural borders.
Delegates will also get to attend exclusive social events, including formal Opening and Closing ceremonies, an International Night where they can share their cultural heritage through performances, and an Entertainment Night where they can meet other delegates in an informal setting. This year’s Harvard Conference will also feature HPAIRx, an opportunity for delegates to present short TED-style talks to share personal stories that will enlighten and inspire.
