The next Copernicus Symposium will be held January 13, 2015 in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
Today, society and science are at a crossroads. Moving to a more sustainable development pattern in society demands a deep understanding of our natural, industrial and social systems, to bring together knowledge from all facets of life.
The Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development fosters new interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary science to identify sustainable and innovative pathways for and with our society. The symposium highlights three approaches; ranging from understanding and mitigating the impact of global change on ecosystems, to integrating sustainable energy in our daily life, and designing interactive science with society and business.
