Science informs us, but culture propels us, as society tries to come to terms with the complexities of climate change. Asia Society Hong Kong and Civic Exchange bring together two very different topics —  culture and climate change — in this unique panel discussion with leading figures in contemporary art, classical music, photography and sustainable finance. The event will be moderated by Civic Exchange Visiting Fellow Paula DiPerna, who is both an expert in green finance, as well as an author and filmmaker.

Date: Thursday, 19 April, 2018

Time: Reception 5:30 pm, Discussion 6pm-7pm

Venue: Asia Society Hong Kong Center, 9 Justice Drive, Admiralty
