Be a part of this quest for a better tomorrow.

In today’s world, we are constantly immersed in chasing material possessions for security and stability, which causes us to lose focus on great possibilities in shaping our future.

All it would take is for us to evolve our thoughts and actions, leveraging on paradigm-shifting ideas, wealth and capabilities available to begin changing the world for the better.

This has called for the International Social Well-Being Conference (ISWC) to return in a quest to discover better quality lives.

Themed ‘Shaping Destiny; Between Hope & Extinction’, the conference will be held on Nov 21 and 22 at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, bringing together thought leaders and policymakers to collaborate for change – a better future.

Initiated by the Employees Provident Fund in collaboration with Amundi Asset Management and Aberdeen Standard Investments, the one-and-a-half day conference hopes to inspire and empower people to fundamentally review, rethink and reshape their perspective towards well-being and human values. Thus, identifying new ways on how to live a quality life.

The event will see presentations and panel sessions by speakers including Jane Goodall Institute Roots & Shoots founder Dr Jane Goodall who will speak on ‘The Seed of Hope’; The Future Hunters executive vice-president and chief operating officer Erica Orange to present ‘Age of Templosion: Impending Doom?’; and Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation chief executive officer Surina Shukri to discuss ‘Humanity in the Digital World’.

On a mission to empower our nation through education, Teach For Malaysia founder Dzameer Dzulkifli will share the importance of nurturing talents of tomorrow; Dr Muhammed Abdul Khalid, economic adviser to the Prime Minister, will be speaking on ‘Shaping Destiny to Ensure Equitable Well-Being’ while Global Institute For Tomorrow founder Chandran Nair will highlight the sustainable future of the government, economy and society.
