AVPN Virtual Conference 2020

While the world remains shaken and confined due to the unprecedented global pandemic, we at AVPN feel that it is more important than ever to take collective action, reinforce our connection to one another (albeit virtually) and share stories of inspiration and innovation that we can all learn from. With that in mind, we are taking our 2020 Conference fully online for the first time ever.

Social Distancing Doesn’t Necessitate Social Disconnection

The AVPN Conference has become known for highly relevant and practical learning opportunities as well as unmatched networking opportunities amongst the social investment community in Asia. So, while social distancing and travel restrictions prevent us from hosting our in-person event, we can still make space for learning and connection by harnessing technology to bring the AVPN Conference to our community in a series of live and pre-recorded sessions from 8-12 June 2020.

The 8th annual  AVPN Conference will focus on the impact that networks can bring to scale solutions and advance global agendas.  Leveraging the power of networks has never been more important to address the pressing issues that no one organization, country or individual can solve alone.

The virtual conference will explore themes such as gender, climate action, nutrition, and health with a special segment on COVID-19 that highlights best practices from early actors who have made a tangible difference in these past months. Modules will be tailored for a variety of audiences from impact investing and strategic philanthropy to family offices and corporations.

Why It Matters

Asia is at a critical juncture.

Unless progress is accelerated, Asia-Pacific will miss achieving all of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

Nonetheless, the region is a catalyst for positive systemic change. Passionate and socially attuned leaders are rising up and a growing concentration of the world’s largest wealth-holders is driving impact at scale.

To facilitate the effective flow of resources into critical issues, AVPN is leading the charge to convene a diverse network of eminent social investors across Asia. These leading practitioners are driving innovative best practices, collaborating around under-served causes, and advancing a movement towards maximum impact.

The goal of the AVPN Virtual Conference 2020 is to ensure social investors are better equipped to champion and deploy capital more effectively into critical issues that matter most to them. The conference is now the largest social investing conference in Asia-Pacific with more than 1000 representatives from over 45 countries.
