SEA Change is an annual conference seeking to raise awareness and foster discussions about issues in Southeast Asia. The conference is run by the Stanford chapter of the non-profit organization SEALNet, founded in 2004.
The theme for this year's conference will be Southeast Asia at Crossroads. We will have three panels focusing on three different aspects of change in Southeast Asia:
- Southeast Asian Economic Relations with China
- Technology and Entrepreneurship in Southeast Asia
- Political Development in Southeast Asia.
Join us as we discuss the challenges faced by the next generation of Southeast Asian leaders as well as the exciting potential to create a Southeast Asia that is peaceful, prosperous and purposeful.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, February 8th, 2014!

Southeast Asia as Change, as the potential of Southeast Asia for bottom-up, locally initiated change and development, as the future that the next generation of Southeast Asian leaders must work together to create.
