Theme for 2015 Event: International Research Collaboration - Addressing Environmental Challenges

Michigan State University’s Environmental Science and Policy Program requests that you Save the Date for this fall’s Research Symposium. This year’s theme focuses on collaborations between scholars across disciplines and across geographies working together to identify and address pressing environmental challenges. We propose this conference as a means to connect ideas and researchers from a myriad of backgrounds and regions. A holistic approach toward sustainability requires multiple perspectives, and this program intends to foster this interdisciplinary sharing. The symposium will explore opportunities and angles to better unite present and future academics in addressing the state of the environment.

Strengthened environmental decision making requires researchers who can critically integrate diverse perspectives and methodologies when conceptualizing, investigating, and addressing environmental challenges. Students from all departments are invited to present work at any stage in its development through oral presentations, poster presentations, and discussion groups. Please mark Oct. 23 on your calendar for the symposium and keep an eye open for our calls for abstracts and the opening of registration.
