At the Forefront of Nature's Rage: Asia-Pacific at the Cross Road
12.00 - 3 pm, Tuesday May 23rd, 2017
Rethinking economic risk & opportunity in the face of natural disasters & extreme events

Unprecedented economic growth is putting heavy pressure on natural resources in Asia-Pacific resulting in worsening water quality, air pollution, land degradation and waste generation; threatening human and environmental health and costing the economy billions. Smarter, greener and cleaner investment of around US $2.5 trillion a year can transform the region into a hub for sustainability. Without climate-oriented, greener development policies, over 100 million people in Asia-Pacific could be forced into extreme poverty by 2030, wiping out poverty reduction gains achieved over the last decade.

Steve Jobs
7pm, Monday May 29, 2017
Documentary Film Series

In his signature black turtleneck and blue jeans, shrouded in shadows below a milky apple, Steve Jobs' image was ubiquitous. But who was the man on the stage? What accounted for the grief of so many across the world when he died? From Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney, 'Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine' is a critical examination of Jobs who was at once revered as an iconoclastic genius and a barbed-tongued tyrant. A candid look at Jobs' legacy featuring interviews with a handful of those close to him at different stages in his life, the film is evocative and nuanced in capturing the essence of the Apple legend and his values which shape the culture of Silicon Valley to this day.
