United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will speak about the UN's role in creating opportunities out of the challenges posed by today's rapidly transitioning world.
Ban's initiatives as UN secretary-general have focused on promoting sustainable development; empowering women; supporting countries in crisis or instability; generating new momentum on disarmament, arms control, and nonproliferation; and strengthening the UN.
Ban's talk begins a series of activities commemorating Shorenstein APARC's thirtieth anniversary. Founded in 2005, Shorenstein APARC's Asia-Pacific Leaders Forum regularly convenes senior leaders from across Asia and the Pacific to exchange ideas on current political, economic, and social dynamics in the region.
Tickets for the talk are sold out, but seats may be available on a limited, first-come basis at the event.
