Connecting Countries for the SDGs: Mash-Up Returns to SE Asia
03/11/2017 - Impact Hub
How do you connect a community that spans over 104 cities and 50 countries worldwide? What about hosting a live event in five different countries and time zones simultaneously, with a keynote speaker going live to every location? This is what we call Impact Hub Mash-Ups, a unique event that attracts hundreds of guests and the best talents, leaders and organisations in regions all over the world.
Last month, Impact Hubs in the South East Asia region collaborated to bring a Mash-Up to Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai, Manila, Phnom Penh and Taipei. A chance to strengthen ties between Impact Hubs and meet new innovators, Mash-Ups also spread awareness around the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with each event focusing on a particular theme.
The Mash-Up focused on the 3 SDGs related to the environment: Life Under Water, Climate Action, and Affordable and Clean Energy. This acted as a great opportunity to celebrate our global partnership with WWF, and we had the pleasure of welcoming Robecca Jumin, Head of Marine Programme for WWF Malaysia as our keynote speaker for the evening.
The mix of local speakers and a live streamed keynote allows Impact Hubs to take advantage of rich, diverse content, from near and afar. Join the next Mash-Up on the 28th November in Europe and Africa, focusing this time on #GivingTuesday and SDG 17, Partnerships for delivering the SDGs. Stay tuned!
