On 6 October 2023, the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Regional Centre for Sufficiency Economy Philosophy for Sustainability (SEAMEO SEPS), in collaboration with the SEAMEO Regional Centre for Archaeology and Fine Arts (SEAMEO SPAFA), broadcast the second webinar in its SEP - SDGs in Action: Virtual Learning Series, with a webinar on the topic “SDGs, Climate Action and Culture”.
