Washington University Students for International Collaboration on the Environment

Conference Update

On the Conference Format, here’s a little about how our collaborative project is going to work:

– On the first day, every student will be randomly given a “passport”, and they will be matched up with another person with the same issue (who is assigned the opposite country – one for America, one for China).

– This pair collaborates on a presentation on the issue based on personal experiences and research. The presentation will be given during the first part of the Mock COP-16 trial.

– For the Conference, each pair is split off by country, bringing their research/knowledge of their issue to others. As we share what we’ve learned and ideas intermingle, then comes the debate, during the second part of the day!

There will be time provided between lectures and discussions and social events for students to do research.
