The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), The University of Queensland (UQ), and University of Exeter (Exeter), are world-leading in environmental science with a strong dedication to the advancement of sustainable development. The three universities have separately established the CUHK-Exeter Joint Centre for Environmental Sustainability and Resilience (ENSURE) and the QUEX Institute to tackle challenges emerging from the changing environment and its influence on planetary health.
To share current work and to inspire collaboration, the CUHK-UQ-Exeter Joint Symposium on Environmental Sustainability on 9 November 2021 will showcase some of the projects undertaken by QUEX and ENSURE in the areas of marine science, air pollution, climate adaptation and conservation, and microplastics pollution. The event will feature a panel discussion to shed light on the power of global partnership in a post-COVID world. The Symposium is also a prelude to an exploratory workshop, to be held on 16 November, on building strong researcher links to explore collaborative projects.
The Symposium will be of interest to those passionate about research in addressing environmental sustainability and those who may be interested in working with CUHK, UQ, and Exeter in this endeavour. It is particularly relevant to early career researchers who are keen to develop their global network. All are welcome.
