Carnegie Council’s Asia Dialogues program will lead a one-week fact finding trip (site visit) to Manila, Philippines, during the week of October 22, 2018. The purpose of the trip will be to conduct dialogues with experts and practitioners to explore current issues relating to climate change in Philippine politics and society. Topics of conversation may include: rising sea levels, disaster response, human rights, migration, community resilience, urban planning, civil rights, gender equality, energy policy, and climate change mitigation and adaptation.
Carnegie Council’s aim with this project is to foster mutual learning, forge new meaningful relationships across cultural lines, and continue to bring the Council’s ethical dialogue to local communities around the world.
Applications are now being accepted from students and professionals under 40 from the United States and East Asia to join this trip as a delegate. Curriculum Vitae and letter of interest (1,000 words or less) should be submitted by the March 16, 2018 deadline.
