Event Description

The goal of this conference is to bring together financial, corporate, government, and non-governmental experts to discuss innovative methods to address environmental concerns. Over the last ten years, the global community has seen an emergence of new ways to deal with environmental concerns and value environment goods. These range from voluntary programs that integrate green business procedures to the development of public- private partnerships to the mainstreaming of financial instruments that encourage environmentally sound investment. We hope that this framework will allow people to share ideas and encourage cross - fertilization between the experts and the students.

This day-long conference, which will take place at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School for Public and International Affairs, will mix a plenary setting with break out groups, as well as allow time for interaction between the participants and students at a conference lunch and cocktail hour. Each session will deal with cross cutting issues and will be facilitated by Princeton Faculty, students, or outside experts.

Princeton University's Woodrow School for Public and International Affairs trains undergraduates, graduates, and mid-career professionals. The School's program offers rigorous preparation for careers in public life. The program seeks to develop in its graduates a lasting commitment to public affairs. It fosters an appreciation of the historical, institutional, and cultural contexts of public, environmental, and international policy.
