Sustainability in Asia: Proceedings
Sustainability Conference, April 2017, Hong Kong
Advances in sustainability research, community engagement, and opportunities for collaboration
The conference—Sustainability in Asia: Partnerships for Research and Implementation—brought together international scholars, scientists, practitioners, and policy influencers from the United States and Asia who are working to advance sustainable practices and solutions throughout the world.
The program illustrated how creative collaborations between Cornell University and research partners throughout Asia are tackling sustainability challenges such as urban energy and infrastructure transitions, the complex connections of One Health, and agricultural resilience in Asia.
The event, in honor of the late Cornell University President Elizabeth Garrett, was organized by the university's David R. Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future and Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, with financial support from the Office of the Vice Provost for International Affairs.
