KMF2016

Geography As Destiny? Reaping the Dividends of Good Stewardships

26 & 27 September 2016

Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre

Concept Paper

“The transitions in mindset…from the paradigm of production to one of preservation; from the paradigm of maximisation to one of optimisation, and from the paradigm of resource ownership to one of stewardship – will be one of the greatest tests of our time. Indeed, successfully recalibrating our collective worldview may even take a generation – but it will be a cause which is worth fighting, and a cause which is worth winning.”
