  • Engage in conversation and knowledge share from the Asia-Pacific, Australia and beyond
  • Learn from overseas and local examples of improving capacity in challenging situations
  • Explore community-driven approaches to prevent and respond to men’s violence against women and children
  • Identify ways to ensure women’s safety and perpetrator accountability
