While the world remains shaken and confined due to the unprecedented global pandemic, we at AVPN feel that it is more important than ever to take collective action, reinforce our connection to one another (albeit virtually) and share stories of inspiration and innovation that we can all learn from. With that in mind, we are taking our 2020 Conference fully online for the first time ever.
Asia-Pacific is at a critical juncture. While it struggles with a complex web of pressing socio-environmental challenges, the region is a catalyst for positive systemic change, with a population of young, passionate, and socially attuned leaders as well as a growing concentration of the world’s largest wealth-holders.
To facilitate the strategic flow of financial and non-financial resources into these critical, high impact areas, AVPN is leading the charge to convene a diverse community of eminent social investing practitioners and thought leaders across Asia.
These are leaders who are capable of sharing and applying innovative best practices, willing to collaborate around under-served causes, and experienced in advancing a movement towards maximum impact. Within seven years, AVPN now hosts the largest social investing conference in Asia-Pacific with more than 1000 representatives from over 45 countries.
The goal of the AVPN Conference 2020 is to ensure social investors are better equipped to champion and deploy capital more effectively into critical issues that matter most to them.
Themed ‘The Power Networks’, the 8th edition of the AVPN Conference will focus on the impact that networks can bring to advance global agendas, scale solutions and connect key stakeholders for maximum collective impact. Leveraging the power of networks has never been more important to address the pressing global issues that no one organization, country or individual can solve alone.
