The Institute for Sustainability, Energy and Environment (iSEE) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invites you and your students to attend a major climate conference this September.

iSEE Congress 2017:
“Building Resilience
to Climate Change”
Sept. 18-20, 2017
Alice Campbell Alumni Center
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign


The annual iSEE Congress exists to assemble leading national and international scientists from different disciplines to advance scientific understanding about state-of-the-art knowledge on the impacts of climate change on the agricultural sector, on ecosystem services, and on human livelihoods and wellbeing, particularly among the most vulnerable sections of society.
This year, we're especially excited to welcome John Holdren, former White House Director for Science and Technology Policy, for a keynote address on Sept. 18. This will be followed by plenary sessions Sept. 19-20.
As instructors, researchers, and experts in the fields of energy, agriculture, sustainability, economics, environment, and atmospheric science, your perspectives — and the perspectives of your colleagues and students — are invaluable to this conversation. Our previous iSEE Congresses have been attended by more than 300 faculty, students and others. These events have stimulated critical thinking on the grand challenges facing society.
