Rabb Symposium on Urban Sustainability in South Asia and Latin America, Sep 20–22
The first R. L. Rabb Science and Society Symposium will be held at NC State University on Thursday, September 20, through Friday, September 22, in the James B. Hunt Jr. Library on Centennial Campus.
The symposium brings together a group of interdisciplinary scholars, writers, artists and practitioners addressing urban sustainability issues with a focus on the emerging mega-cities of Latin America and South Asia. Dr Raju Vatsavai, associate professor in the Department of Computer Science at NC State, is one of the speakers.
The Symposium starts on Thursday evening with a brief introduction to urban sustainability initiatives in North Carolina. On Friday, we have a full day of panels bringing together presenters from the United States, Latin America and South Asia. We conclude on Saturday with a planning workshop focused on building further collaborations between NC State researchers and institutions and scholars beyond our state.
The public is warmly welcomed to join the activities—all located in Hunt library—and to help us build our knowledge and expertise in addressing urban sustainability.
