As sustainability issues come to the fore on an even dramatic fashion, the World Student Environmental Summit invites students and young professionals to discuss the causes and triggers that lie beneath the surface and to examine how they can collaborate, conserve and create altogether as one entity - the human race.

The environmental landscape keeps changing fundamentally; tomorrow’s environment will be different, but no less rich in possibilities for those who are prepared. We are experiencing not merely another turn of the climatic cycle, but in some regions a restructuring of the climate itself.

Some countries including small island development states have near-term survival as the only agenda item. Others are peering through the fog of uncertainty anticipating what environmental catastrophe unheard of may surprise them.

What will a normal environment look like? What will a normal society look like? What will a normal economy look like?The “new normal” will be shaped by a confluence of powerful forces, some arising directly from the actions taken by institutions and governments and some that were at work long before it began.

Therefore, the Summit will analyze these complex sustainability issues and develop future prospects to ensuing questions of how to collaborate with the diversity of talents, how to conserve our current precious assets and how to create solutions for problems that do not yet exist. All these require courage and leaps of imagination. Young people as leaders of tomorrow and change agents in this context will be placed at the centre of the discussion.

Please take a look at the Summit theme below and to our schedule to learn more about the specific topics.

Protecting the world heritage

On the one hand, we can congratulate ourselves for having preserved endangered species and for doing good by doing well. On the other hand, we cannot help feeling ashamed of a mess we leave behind for an innocent generation to clean up. What do we have that needs the most protection, while countries keep their high rate of growth? What best practices in environmental management can we learn from one another? How to influence our peers to conserve what we have as unique - the earth?

Imagining a sustainable future for all

Our global village keeps shrinking, some say. Others say our world is flat. The economy is increasingly complex and dynamic. In this complex world, how do we ensure our future is common and not divided? What do we create to support over 10b people in the next few years? What shapes and forms should businesses and cities take to accommodate changing needs?

Thriving with the diversity of the human pool

Globalisation and mobility have reshuffled our idea of citizenship, nationality and patriotism. The mundane question ‘Where do you come from?’ leaves some people speechless. As we continue to live in a society that is increasingly materialistic, individualistic and ethno-centric, how do we come together to speak a common language for sustainability? What systems do we put in place to ensure that values are shared? How do we work elbow-to-elbow to design a common future for us and for our children?
