Confronting Environmental Change in Asia

9 AM - 5 PM WHERE NYUAD Campus WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute By Invitation Interested scholars please contact

Environments, and climates, change. They have before, and they will again. To say as much need not weaken resolve in recognizing the onset, and the stakes, of the Anthropocene. In Asia—home to sixty percent of the world’s population, living on only thirty percent of Earth's land—the stakes are especially high, for all forms of life. This workshop explores not just “lessons learned” from past experience of environmental (and climate) change in Asia, but insights about those experiences that may help us all more effectively live in the environmental present and face the climate future.
