Completed in 2010:
GIN2010 ‘Climate Change and Green Growth: Innovating for sustainability’
June 13-16, 2010, ASEM Hall COEX Convention Center, Seoul, Korea
Climate change is the single most critical issue actively discussed all over the world. The Korea government declared ‘Low Carbon Green Growth’ as a top priority policy agenda in August 2008, and is about to present a voluntary carbon emission reduction target. Since we anticipate that more countries will join our common efforts to reduce green house gas emissions after Copenhagen Summit, we need to pursue the right way to cope with climate change together with developing countries.
As a host of GIN2010, KEMA (The Korea Environmental Management Association) welcomes you to the GIN2010. We promise a fruitful academic and cultural program, an excellent networking opportunity, with special entertainment. We will arrange meeting with editors of major journals during the Conference so that high quality contributions can be published in the journals.
