ASPEn is pioneering a new platform for international cooperation in the field of sustainability. By pairing similar groups in very different continents we are creating an environment that facilitates knowledge and experience sharing on a large scale.
The online element is currently under development with support from our Scottish partners. This will be populated with NGOs, start-ups, academic institutions and public bodies from across the Asia Pacific and the UK.
This will would allow previously undiscovered Asian groups, specifically startups, to make themselves known to each other and their counterparts in Scotland; allowing international partnerships to form.
ASPEn will become a beacon to establish Scotland-Asian trade routes that are built on sustainable principles. It will draw in a host of customers ranging from innovators and entrepreneurs in previously under-represented countries to high-level European investors, SMEs, NGOs and even government arms.
