This year’s Symposium is entitled Policymaking for a Well Society. It will focus in on three major themes at the core of how our societies thrive or struggle – environment, health and housing. By dissecting each of these policy topics in detail this year’s symposium hopes to make us reflect on where we have done well and where we can do better.
