The 2011 Sakamaki Extraordinary Lectures series kicks off a summer-long forum for viewpoints and discussion prior to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Honolulu in November. Topics include human rights, music, aging, climate justice and regional trade.
APEC’s 21-member economies span four continents and represent 43 percent of world trade. Six extraordinary lectures explore this dynamic region’s potential for peace, cooperation and sustainable growth.
Lectures are free and open to the public on Wednesdays at 7 pm in the UH Mānoa Architecture Auditorium (campus map).
