Earth System Governance Conference May 17-20

May 16, 2011

What is the 'Earth System Governance Project?' The project explores ways to prevent, mitigate, and adapt to local and global environmental change. The vision is to introduce a system that depends less on governments for rule making, in the interest of sustaining local and global environments. The new system is inclusive of industry, non-state individuals and organizations, indigenous communities, city governments and international organizations.

May 17-20
8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Lory Student Center

The 2011 Colorado Conference on Earth System Governance: Crossing Boundaries and Building Bridges will be held at Colorado State University, May 17-20.

This conference is part of a global series organized by the Earth System Governance Project, a ten-year research program under the auspices of the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change (IHDP). 

Scholars/practitioners invited

The Colorado Conference will advance the Earth System Governance project’s research agenda by bringing together scholars from a wide range of disciplines as well as practitioners. The expectation is that discussions will open new and fruitful areas of research and collaboration on earth system governance.
