Asian Dialogues Transformative Leadership in Action

Date: April 11th, 2019
Venue: Social Innovation Lab, No. 99, Renai Rd., Daan Dist, Taipei City 106

Asian Dialogues: Transformative Leadership in Action. Through its three key themes – democratic deficit, development deficit and trust deficit – the dialogue on transformative leadership touches on contemporary challenges to effective and ethical governance and the rule of law (SDG 16 – Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions), equal opportunities to holistic social and national development (9 – Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure; 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities), and the continuity of social order in the face of a rapidly changing world (10 – Reduced Inequalities). Through the sharing of experiences and engaging in an honest dialogue, older and younger generations of leaders can bridge the discourse gap across the three thematic areas. The event highlights on the value of intergenerational discourse in the transfer of “wisdom” and how today’s youths can serve as agents of impactful social innovation in their respective communities and beyond.
