|AGS Annual Meetings|
|Each year, the AGS Annual Meeting brings
together approximately 300 scholars, thought leaders and
decision-makers of public interest groups, industry, and government
from around the world to examine how the integrated research
paradigm developed by the AGS is contributing to sustainable
Through panels and working groups, participants
consider ways in which the AGS can evolve effective means to address
complex global sustainability issues. The meeting provides
opportunities for knowledge sharing among the member schools and
their partners in sustainability research and education. It also
provides an opportunity to foster AGS research partnerships and
showcase research results.
An underlying goal of the annual
meetings is to determine how the academy, and AGS in particular, can
help to improve the basis for decision-making. When dealing with the
urgent issues of sustainability, the importance of making new
knowledge available quickly and in a language that is easily
understood by decision-makers in both the public and private sectors
cannot be overestimated.
The annual meeting is hosted each
year by one of the member schools on a rotating basis.
