What is the Exchange?
THE EXCHANGE is a series of evening events, held weekly, featuring guest presentations, performances, and activities. Sessions explore the pressing issues, histories, challenges, innovations, and vibrant cultures that make the Asia-Pacific region unique. THE EXCHANGE is a chance for students and distinguished guests to share their time and their ideas, with each becoming better informed and better connected as a result. THE EXCHANGE is planned and produced by graduate students at the East-West Center.

Fall 2021: Transformative Care
Creating Intertwined Futures Beyond the Pandemic
The future that we envision will be the present that we will live in tomorrow. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected each of us in a multitude of ways. However, this ongoing global event, along with many others, has challenged us to ask “how can we transform our world for the better?” In order to create a better world, we must imagine and work towards it together.
This semester’s Fall 2021 Exchange explores the ways in which we can deepen relationships with ourselves, community and the earth in order to build resilience and a shared future that will benefit us all. The sessions will highlight possibilities for holistic change with this idea of “care” as the central pillar of our efforts. We hope to truly develop care and love to cultivate solutions for a more peaceful, equitable and just world.
