The first R. L. Rabb Science and Society Symposium brings together a group of interdisciplinary scholars, writers, artists, and practitioners addressing urban sustainability issues, with a focus on the emerging mega-cities of Latin America and South Asia. The Symposium starts on Thursday with a brief introduction to the wealth of North-Carolina-based projects on urban sustainability developed at NC State. On Friday we have a full day of panels bringing together presenters from the United States, Latin America, and South Asia. We conclude on Saturday with a planning workshop focused on building further collaborations between NC State researchers and institutions and scholars beyond our state. The public is warmly welcomed to join the three days of activities—all located in Hunt library—and to help us build our knowledge and expertise in addressing urban sustainability.
