Energy, environment and health present great challenges for moving toward a sustainable world. Buildings and the urban environment play a central role in all three areas. Syracuse University (SU) and Nanjing University (NJU) are collaborating to enhance their impact in the field of sustainability. Both universities have significant investment and development in academic teaching, research and extension programs and are internationally known for their contributions to the field of sustainability.

Join us for the 3rd Syracuse University – Nanjing University Forum on Green Buildings and Urban Environment which will encourage and facilitate academic exchange among faculty members and students and create opportunities for collaboration among different disciplines.

Chair: Dr. Jensen Zhang, Professor and Director, Building Energy and Environmental Systems Laboratory, SU

Co-Chair: Dr. Menghao Qin, Professor and Director, Center for Sustainable Building Research, NJU
