2015 has been and will continue to be a year of immense change on issues like sustainable development and climate change, with the resulting new policies of new leadership. The US and Indonesia happen to be some of the countries experiencing the most change. The new leadership of Indonesia’s President Jokowi along with India’s Modi, Brazil’s Dilma Roussef, and Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan together represent 1.8 billion people, one-quarter of the world’s population who are capable of effecting mass change. President Barack Obama is looking to cement his legacy over his last two years in office and can still take lead on a global climate deal, though Congress offers few signs of hope of productively responding to the climate challenge. The effects of any new environment policy will have resulting effects for national economies as well.
What stories will impact people and the planet in 2015? What challenges and new opportunities will the US and Indonesia have to look forward to in 2015 and heading into 2016? Andrew Steer will discuss the issues and stories that will shape the world in economics, business, natural resources, and the environment in 2015.
USINDO in cooperation with the World Resources Institute and Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia is delighted to host an open forum on Stories to Watch 2015.
