WEBINAR: Policy dialogues on sustainable lifestyles in Asia and circular economy
Date: 2nd September 2020
Time: 10:00 (Bangkok time)
SWITCH-Asia Regional Policy Advocacy Component (SWITCH-Asia RPAC) funded by European Union (EU), implemented by UNEP Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, and the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) are organizing a Dialogue on Sustainable Lifestyle for SCP (sustainable patterns of consumption and production) with an Additional Focus on Covid-19. 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.
Promote SDG 12 by:
1. Enhancing understanding of the sustainable lifestyle concept through discussion of good practices in Asia with relevant examples from European countries.
2. Analyzing/proposing the enabling environment (policies, financing, business models, technologies and stakeholders' engagement) and promoting knowledge transfer through networking.
