  11:00-12:00 Session 1: "It's a small world"  
    The phrase "It's a Small World" is used when you have encountered the same people, events, or situations. The Asia Pacific region is one of the largest and most diverse regions in the world, however there are many common challenges and opportunities; making the world that much smaller. The YSNAP welcomes invited guests to present and discuss the meeting theme "Geospatial Information for a Smarter Life and Environmental Resilience." The format of this session will involve formal presentations, followed by a facilitated panel discussion!

  12:00-13:00 Session 2: What is Resilience and why does it matter?  

Resilience is the ability to recover from setbacks, adapt well to change, and keep going in the face of adversity. It applies to all facets of life, and during this session we will learn about the various forms of resilience and why it is important!

This session will be a balance between Young Surveyors from the Asia Pacific Region and experienced Surveyors sharing their perspective on resilience.

We will hear stories from local projects, stories of collaboration and contribution to our profession, and learn new skills for resilience. This session will inspire and encourage participants to be a part of the network, seize opportunities and at the same time give back to society.
