The ASTI Socrates Dialogue


Apart from the health crisis that has affected billions of people throughout the world as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic, many people are confronted with the new and unprecedented global economic reality.
Are the old economic norms relevant in the advent of new technologies and method of doing things? Is employment the main mode to achieve an equitable livelihood? Can Entrepreneurship be the way forward in producing quick solutions in a world which is fast changing?
Many people believe that the world will be irreversibly transformed after the Covid-19 pandemic, which might mean more challenges and perhaps also opportunities for people to build a better world.
In order to push this public discourse forward, ASTI launched a paper writing competition titled “Reinventing A Better World Post Covid-19” focusing on economics, entrepreneurship and livelihood.
In conjunction with ASTI’s paper writing competition, “Reinventing A Better World Post Covid-19”, focusing on economics, entrepreneurship and livelihood, we are organising the first ever ASTI Socrates Dialogue (ASD), with visionaries and experts on the subject in question. ASDs are public discourses to deeply understand the nature of things.
We hope this event will galvanise us to start asking the right questions and expand on this domain of thought towards creating a more balanced world.
This is a hybrid event with limited seats. Please confirm your attendance early.
