HPAIR Harvard College Conference 2019 [USA, Feb 15-19]: Apply by Dec 25: Expired


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 2019 HPAIR Harvard College 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 to share their cultural heritage through performances, and an Entertainment night to relax with other delegates in an informal setting. Select delegates will share about their experiences in a featured HPAIRx experience, an opportunity to inspire and inform other delegates in a TED-style talk.
