Auckland to host Summit on Sustainability
Wednesday, 24 May, 2006
Organisations wanting practical solutions for addressing sustainability have the chance to attend a Summit on Sustainability in Auckland from August 27 - 30.
Among the guest speakers are climate change expert Dr Bob Corell, urban planning advocate James Kunstler, and Professor Tetsuya Sato, Director General of the Earth Simulator Centre in Japan.
Planned by the New Zealand branch of the International Society of Digital Earth, the summit aims to assist industry, government, research and IT leaders to better use environmental data already available for addressing goals of sustainability.
"This is a real opportunity to build on the growing constituency for sustainability in New Zealand," says Auckland Councillor Richard Simpson.
"The Summit won't just be talk about issues like global warming; it will scope scenarios for practical action and model solutions that are already available in this country."
