Working Groups are the core of the APRU Sustainable Cities and Landscapes Conferences and represent an important opportunity for delegates to participate in collaborative research in partnerships with members of the APRU network, to develop new researcher collaboration and cross-disciplinarity, and to contribute towards finding solutions to the pressing problems of this century.
The APRU-SCL has established Working Groups around strategic themes that are evolving from conference to conference to reflect the key issues and pressures for our cities and landscapes across the Pacific Rim.
In 2020 the Working Groups are:
- Children, Youth and Environments
- Food Nutrition Security
- Future Energy Landscapes
- Indigenous Knowledge and Wisdom
- Landscape and Human Health
- Smart Cities
- Sustainable Urban Design
- Transitions in Urban Waterfronts
- Urban-Rural Linkages
- Vulnerable Resilient and Climate Justice Communities
- Water and Waste
Working Groups will meet several times during the Conference and each of them will have an agenda of activities aligned with relevant Sustainable Development Goals.
To join a Working Group, delegates need to download the Expression of Interest form, fill it in and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by 4th July 2020. Working Group Leaders / Co-Leaders will assess your application and will get in touch with you as soon as possible.
