  • An occasion to independently learn, research and form opinions on complex topics that will contribute to the development of well-rounded individuals.
  • A networking opportunity for individuals from different backgrounds and nationalities.
  • A platform to support the development of problem solving, critical thinking and interpersonal skills among Cambodian students and young professionals.
