AVPN South Asia Summit 2022
9 - 10 February 2022 | ONLINE EVENT
The Asian Decade
The South Asia Summit 2022 is a 2 day event that will be conducted online on our virtual event platform.
The event brings together social investors working across India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka, towards deep engagement, meaningful and action oriented conversations for all the players in the fast evolving social investment ecosystem.
The thematic focus areas will cut across Healthcare, Climate, Water and Sanitation, Entrepreneurship and Livelihoods, Gender and Ed Tech. The event will celebrate unprecedented successes in collaboration in battling the pandemic and responding effectively. It will also explore significant shifts and new models like innovative financing, social stock exchange, ESG, catalytic capital and the poignant role of South Asia in shaping what we call ‘The Asian Decade’.
VOICE OF OUR MEMBERS
The Asian Decade
The Covid-19 pandemic has upended our lives over the past months. We live in challenging times and there is certainly much to be frustrated about - Lives are lost, health and safety are a concern and restrictions prevent us from meeting one another in person.
However, as the saying goes: We can be the change we wish to see.
AVPN recently met up with some of our members across Southeast Asia to find out what some of our members are doing to not only build back better but also build forward better.
If irritated oysters can make pearls, what are passionate, frustrated, determined, and innovative social investors able to create in response?
