Reconnecting in a Sustainable World

The APRU Annual Presidents’ Meeting 2022 will be held in Singapore and hosted by Nanyang Technological University, Singapore from July 6-9, 2022.

This annual meeting is an especially important opportunity for presidents to re-connect as our societies begin to open up. We have much to share from our recent experiences as we look to the future.

This meeting will be organized to give all presidents a chance to address the meeting and to maximize informal discussions.

Under the overall theme “Reconnecting in a Sustainable World”, presidents will be invited to address on:

  • Responses to Crisis in a Diverse Region
  • Sustainability and Climate Change
  • Preventing the Next Pandemic
  • Reconnecting: The New Urgency for Collaboration

Participation in the Annual Presidents’ Meeting is by invitation only.
