Sustainable Islands Futures (SIF) symposium on Industrial Ecology Day - PROGRAM & REGISTRATION INFO

Registration for Non-Members here and for ISIE members at the bottom of this page

On International Industrial Ecology Day, the "Island Industrial Ecology" section of ISIE is co-hosting a symposium together with the University of Aruba, & the Metabolism of Islands (MoI).

Small island states are characterized by a strong dependency on external resources to meet their basic needs which highly contributes to the vulnerability of these territories. The approaches to increase resource security and self-reliance in small island states need to be carefully redesigned considering context-specific challenges and opportunities. At the same time, in order to achieve sustainability and build system resilience, holistic approaches need to be favored over narrow agendas. Several research collaborations are ongoing to address these challenges, such as the Sustainable Island Solutions through Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (SISSTEM) program at the University of Aruba, the Islands section of ISIE, and the Metabolism of Islands (MoI) research program. These bring together researchers from a dozen universities that are concerned about sustainable futures for small islands throughout the world. This multidisciplinary symposium aims to bring together emerging scholars to exchange ideas and approaches for a sustainability transformation in small island states and to foster interdisciplinary and interinstitutional collaboration.
