Prof. Tan Eng Chye, President of NUS, and Mr. Benedict Cheong, Chief Executive of Temasek Foundation International, gave the welcome remarks on September 6, 2021.

This virtual event focused on developing holistic resilience (physical, mental, social, and emotional), intrapersonal and intercultural skills and understanding, in order to prepare the participants for their future careers in Asia.

The event also included interactive discussions to help the students network with their peers from the ASEAN region. This is a continuing regional event which will be conducted online over 10 sessions (once a week) from September 1 to November 18, 2021.
