Water, Food, and Energy Nexus: Striving for a Better Future

18-26 January, 2017

Bali, Indonesia

 

Universitas Katolik Parahyangan will host 2017 International Student Conference, an opportunity for students to engage in an international and cross cultural experience. Participating students will build new networks by meeting and sharing ideas with students from all over the world. All conference activities will be held in Bali, one of the most wonderful islands in the world.

 

Conference theme:

Water, energy, and food are essential for human well-being, poverty reduction, and sustainable development. Global projections indicate that demand for freshwater, energy, and food will increase significantly over the next decades under the pressure of population growth and mobility, economic development, international trade, urbanization, diversifying diets, cultural and technological changes, and climate change (Hoff 2011). The conference aims to increase global awareness regarding the importance of the complex and dynamic interrelationships between water, energy, and food, so that we can use and manage our limited resources sustainably.

 

The Conference will include 5 lectures and 3 workshops along with role play simulations and cultural activities on the aforementioned topic. Participants who attend ALL activities will be eligible to receive a certificate of attendance. This conference is equal to 3 credits, which is transferable based on student’s home university’s policy.
