The 7th Regional Conference on Island Sustainability will take place April 11-15, 2016 at the Lotte Guam Resort.
This year, the University of Alaska Fairbanks joins the University of Guam Center for Island Sustainability as a co-host of the conference as we explore topics pertinent to soft borders and remote regions. Both universities serve border regions far removed from the mainland US. The institutions are dedicated to supporting dispersed and disconnected “islands” within their regions and are committed to emergent research and awareness of sustainable practice and lifeways toward human survival.
The conference will feature keynote speaker Tony De Brum, Minister-in-Assistance to the President of the Republic of the Marshall Islands.
The conference will inspire change, facilitate action, and provide a venue for sharing, networking, and collaboration of sustainability issues related to economic, social/cultural, educational, environmental or energy solutions. More
