Political Education Academy 2020

The Political Education Academy is organized by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Cambodia with the support of our partner, Politikoffee. The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) recognizes youth as a positive force for transformative positive social changes and aims to enhance their participation in Cambodian politics. The political participation of young people needs to be meaningful and effective, going beyond token gestures. This requires that young people have fundamental knowledge on politics and leadership skills, as well as a strong connection between each other in order to be able to share experiences, build trust in a polarized political environment, collaborate and support each other. Through the annual “Political Education Academy”, launching for the first time in spring 2019, this year 2020 we aim to continue supporting the active participation of youth in political processes and empower the next generation of political, governmental and civil society leaders.

Waste Summit 2019

Smart waste business models and innovations for a clean Cambodia!

If you’re buying a meal in Cambodia to takeaway you can expect to get a plastic box with food in it, a plastic set of cutleries all packed up in a plastic bag. Your drink is going to be in a plastic cup with a plastic straw which is wrapped in plastic. But that’s still not it, the plastic cup will be put in another small plastic bag for you to hold. So, it seems quite logical, that an average Cambodian household uses 12 plastic bags a day, doesn’t it? Almost half of them will be burnt later and the rest ends up in the sea. With one of the fastest growing economy and a growing consumer market, Cambodia is generating significant amounts of waste. Phnom Penh alone already produces 3000 tons of garbage per day and the issue of waste will be more important every day. The landfills are being filled up more and more and manmade waste mountains will be the norm. But as technologies are getting more and more advanced, many start-ups are coming up with new innovative ideas to counteract.

Implications for Cambodia

The support for the development of the legal system in Cambodia is one of the core components of the work of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung. The main aim of the law talks is to promote vital discussions between ex-perts, practitioners and scholars as well as different generations. Due to the legal vacuum that existed during and in the af-termath of the Khmer-Rouge regime, the cultivation of a legal discussion in the spirit of academic freedom and freedom of expression is of genuine importance as legal discourse remains underdeveloped.
