Event Description

Please join us for the first annual conference of the M.S. Chadha Center for Global India at Princeton University focused on Urban Sustainability Transitions in India and the World: Advancing Science and Policy

This conference will be fully online, please see below to register.

Summary: The mission of the M.S. Chadha Center for Global India (CGI) is to address key interactions between India and the world that have potential to transform human and planetary wellbeing, and our imaginaries of the human experience. CGI's first annual conference focuses on India's upcoming massive urbanization, which will bring ~400 million new urbanites to cities by 2050. India's urbanization is occurring against a backdrop of major global challenges (e.g., air pollution, water scarcity, climate change and pandemics) and opportunities (e.g., technological and social innovations). Urban trajectories in India will likely influence urbanization in Southeast Asia and Africa, and profoundly impact global sustainability. Join us to discuss India’s urban trajectory and our common quest for sustainability across cities and nations worldwide.

Innovations discussed will include: infrastructure transitions, food-energy-water nexus, smart cities, circular economy, public health, nature-based solutions, artificial intelligence, and governance.

Register here for three public live-streamed panels.
Streaming link will be provided upon registration.
