All Day Event

The Global Issues Forum: Health in Smart Urban Environments is an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural collaboration driven by faculty at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and National Taiwan University, held in alternation between Taipei and Champaign-Urbana, and focusing on a range of key challenges and opportunities arising from the dramatic increase in urban populations around the world. The forum brings together faculty in Engineering fields who focus on the development and deployment of technologies to reliable, responsive and sustainable urban infrastructures, faculty in natural resources and agricultural sciences who focus on environmental impacts and sustainability issues in expanding urban areas, and faculty in social sciences and humanities who focus on the human factors that affect and are affected by urban lifestyles.
