This initiative aims to create an enabling environment (policies, financing, technologies, business models, and stakeholder engagement) to replicate and scale up good practices on sustainable lifestyles. Under SWITCH-Asia RPAC, two leadership academies for Asia were organized in 2018 and 2019 respectively in different regions inviting participants from all over the Asia. To make these modules available for longer-term to support technical capacity building of youth including young policymakers and practitioners, these modules will be transformed into an off-line course on circular economy and made available through AIT platform with periodic support on feedback and Q&A.
