Program

What is new at AsiaBerlin Summit 2022 Program?

A LOT !

Connecting People is at the core of all activities; everyone will have the chance to connect, take part in interactive sessions, dive into the latest tech trends across both continents, and gain valuable insights from global entrepreneurship hubs. 

We are thrilled to announce that this year we have a special focus on SDGs.  

Why SDGs? In 2015, the member states of the United Nations adopted the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development with its 17 goals, also known as “Global Goals” or “Sustainable Development Goals” (SDGs). Sustainable development also plays an essential role in all policy areas in Berlin. This is why, even before the Agenda 2030, a Core Indicator Report was produced for the sustainable development of Berlin.
