As a multi-disciplinary event hosted in Beijing, YSIF will take advantage of China’s unique position as a rapidly developing economy facing a range of environmental concerns on the world stage. As the Chinese capital and a center of social innovation and technology development, Beijing offers a complex and rapidly evolving landscape in which to study climate change.
The Forum will be organized around four specific focus areas:
- Science & Sustainability
- Green Finance & Technology
- Sustainable Business & Corporate Environmental Responsibility
- Climate Governance & Policy
Transportation to and from Beijing, hotel accommodations, meals, and conference materials will all be accounted for by the Yenching Academy of Peking University. Participants will have to bear visa expenses (if applicable) and other personal expenses.
The application deadline is October 20, 2017, at 23:59pm China Standard Time (GMT+8). Late applications will not be considered.
