PANEL DISCUSSION: CLIMATE CHANGE, CHINA, AND THE WTO

In December 2010, the United States initiated a landmark dispute at the WTO challenging a range of Chinese subsidies to domestic renewable energy manufacturers. Although the dispute is currently still in the consultation phase, it represents a significant step by the United States government and could be a harbinger of things to come as China continues its aggressive push towards clean energy infrastructure and development. What are the environmental, economic and geopolitical implications of this case? Join our distinguished panelists for a wide-ranging discussion of the dispute and its context within international trade law and economics.

Sweet degree program. Interesting that Columbia has softened the fall 2011 admissions deadline to May 1st.
The Earth Institute and School of Continuing Education at Columbia University invite you to join us for an information session on Thursday, March 24 at 6:30 p.m. to learn more about the Master of Science in Sustainability Management program. This will be the program’s last information session before the May 1 deadline for Fall 2011 admission.
All organizations, whether they are multinational corporations or local nonprofits, face a growing number of environmental challenges, from limiting carbon emissions to managing water resources. The M.S. in Sustainability Management is a highly specialized professional program that will formally train and educate sustainability practitioners for a broad range of fields.
The program is designed to meet the growing demand for sustainability managers and will train leaders to bridge the gap between the principle of sustainable development and its practice. Students in the program will learn sophisticated environmental measurement tools and cutting-edge environmental science to fully understand the systematic and organizational role of sustainability in any organization, as businesses in fields including law, financial management, media, pharmaceuticals, transportation, and energy seek out capable managers to guide their environmental stewardship. This program is ideal for practitioners and aspiring professionals working in organizational management, regulatory compliance, facilities operations, and environmental stewardship among many other areas.
The program, co-sponsored by Columbia University’s School of Continuing Education and the Earth Institute, is offered full-time or part-time to accommodate the schedules of working professionals.
Date: Thursday, March 24
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: Faculty House, Columbia University’s Morningside Campus
