Cambodia’s changing demographic destiny is a topic of regular speculation.
A youthful population, with more than two-thirds of the country under the age of 35 as of 2013, both offers the promise of a rising post-Khmer Rouge generation and raises questions about how those young Cambodians will shape the country they inherit.
This year’s Project Inspire explores the question of where young people will fit into a burgeoning economy. Specifically, the event will focus on undervalued professions, like teaching and art, with a series of talks aimed at broadening the range of potential jobs young people might consider pursuing.
The event will also feature performances by singer/songwriter Sai Bt and performing arts troupe Amrita.
Saturday, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Cambodia-Korea Cooperation Center, located at the Royal University of Phnom Penh. Tickets are $2.50 apiece. For more information, contact 085 539 959 or [email protected].
