CUHK-UQ-Exeter Joint Symposium on Environmental Sustainability, 9 November 2021

 

 

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 first-ever CUHK-UQ-Exeter Joint Symposium on Environmental Sustainability was organized on 9 November 2021 to showcase some of the projects undertaken by ENSURE and QUEX Institute  in the areas of marine science, air pollution, climate adaptation and conservation, and microplastics pollution. The event also featured a panel discussion to shed light on the power of global partnership in a post-COVID world.

The Symposium is a prelude to an exploratory workshop, to be held on 16 November, on building strong researcher links to explore collaborative projects.
