Description

The Long Now Foundation's Seminars About Long-term Thinking presents:

Kishore Mahbubani: Has the West Lost It? Can Asia Save It?

In Kishore Mahbubani’s view, global power is shifting from the West to the Rest—from Europe and North America to Asia and Africa. He argues that changes will be required both in the West and the Rest to manage the shift gracefully for long-term stability. The rest of the world has learned a great deal from the West. Now it is the West’s turn to learn and to dispel some of its myths about the new world order.

Singaporean diplomat and scholar Kishore Mahbubani served as his nation’s Ambassador to the United Nations and as President of the UN Security Council. He is a Professor in the Practice of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore where he was Dean of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy from 2004 to 2017. His books include Has the West Lost It?: A Provocation (2018); The ASEAN Miracle (2017); The Great Convergence (2013); and The New Asian Hemisphere (2008).

Doors open at 7:00pm

The Long Now Foundation and Asia Society Northern California are partnering on a series of talks in Long Now's Seminars About Long-term Thinking series. With the Asia Pacific region being vital to long-term thinking for the planet, and especially for those on the Pacific coast, we believe that there is a fruitful collaboration to explore for both of our memberships and the wider public.

Long Now's Seminars are curated and hosted by Stewart Brand. These monthly talks were started in 02003 to build a compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking. Long Now members hear about Seminars first & receive 2 free tickets to each Seminar. Become a member today to access your tickets or view our livestream of Seminars and Interval events online.

To follow the series, you can watch the videos online, subscribe to our podcasts, and read the summaries on Medium.
