Facilitating communication and collaboration between disciplines is essential to address climate change and the many issues it intensifies. The climate crisis and sustainability issues touch on virtually every discipline and the next generation of experts must reinforce the networks between specialists operating in the spheres of environment, economy and society. 

Faciliter la communication et la collaboration entre les disciplines est essentiel pour faire face au changement climatique et aux nombreux problèmes qu’il intensifie. La crise climatique et les questions de durabilité touchent pratiquement toutes les disciplines et la prochaine génération d’experts doit renforcer les liens entre les spécialistes opérant dans les sphères de l’environnement, de l’économie et de la société. 

This symposium is designed to promote open discussion. Our mission is to foster the exchange of scientific knowledge and to lay the foundations for future collaboration among students conducting research on climate change.
