This week in Beijing, the Third Open Science Meeting of the Global Land Project (GLP 3rd OSM 2016) hosts a collection of researchers from around the globe to discuss our planet’s changing landscape.
“The aim of GLP 3rd OSM 2016 is to bring together large parts of the international research community working on land system issues, showcase the width and scope of ongoing research, help build a community in this highly interdisciplinary field, inspire new research, and facilitate review, theory building and application of science in practice.” —Global Land Project
Major themes include “Managing trade-offs and synergies for sustainable land systems”, “Land systems and the water, food, energy nexus”, “Land systems in an urbanizing world”, and “Novel land governance systems to manage natural resources”.
You’ll find many Center members in Beijing this week as well, including Drs. Bill McConnell, Jiaguo Qi, Emilio Moran, Dengsheng Lu, Jiquan Chen, Peilei Fan and students Juno Liu and Sara Torres.
This meeting offers multiple opportunities for our team to build upon our research initiatives and strengthen our partnerships with the international community.
