2018 ProSPER.Net Young Researchers’ School

2018 ProSPER.Net Young Researchers’ School

Sustainable Urban Development for the World’s Megacities

The United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), and the ProSPER.Net Secretariat invite you to participate in the 2018 ProSPER.Net Young Researchers’ School (YRS), to be held in Kanagawa, Japan, on 4-11 March 2018.

Applications are open for postgraduate students from ProSPER.Net member universities to participate in the interdisciplinary Young Researchers’ School on Sustainable Urban Development for the World’s Megacities. To see if your university is eligible, please check the list of ProSPER.Net’s members here.

The aim of the 2018 ProSPER.Net YRS is to offer postgraduate students* in the network an opportunity to engage with issues related to sustainable development in the context of planning and policies in a global megacity.

The main goal of the Young Researchers’ School is to provide graduate students with an opportunity to better understand the spectrum of challenges that underpin sustainable development. By assembling these young scientists together for an intensive several days workshop, the School fosters the growth of a network of sustainability scholars and professionals in the Asia-Pacific region. The School will also encourage future professionals to work within the field of sustainable development.
