After the Copenhagen climate change meeting, Asia’s response will be one of the most important in deciding how the world will develop. How will Asian governments act in building a sustainable and energy efficient society? What will Asian companies do in meeting the challenges and developing a sustainable model? What role should the media play in building a more environmentally friendly world? The conference is not only a gathering of government officials, business people, academics and the media to share their works and ideas with a participating audience of 120, but also mark the start of a series of efforts to promote united action against climate change.
Asia News Network, an alliance of 21 newspapers in 18 countries in the continent, hopes to be pivotal in this endeavor.
The conference is designed to share knowledge of climate change trends among Asian countries and the future of green Asia, and look at policies, action plans, and efforts from the various organizations.
