Environmental News and WUSICE Update
Here’s an interesting article I found: http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE68C0RS20100913
“The prospects of a new global climate change pact still hinge on resolving the divisions between rich nations and the developing world, a top Chinese climate negotiator said in remarks published on Monday.”
It gives insight into the political and economical realms of dealing with environmental issues – the rich vs. the poor struggle is making working on climate issues even more difficult.
And an update on our activities:
Our Information Center on Tuesday went very well – special thanks to Karen and Summer for putting on such a wonderful presentation.
We are happy to report that applications are beginning to come in! WashU students seem just as enthusiastic as their Fudan University counterparts to attend out Conference and be an active part of environmental change – not just at the University level, but the global one as well.
If you haven’t submitted your application, you still have time! Suggest to your friends to apply too.
