About the 2002 State of the Planet Conference
Responding to the global call for greater clarity about the sustainable future of planet Earth, Columbia University, in collaboration with London School of Economics and Political Science, Harvard University, and UNESCO, will convene the State of the Planet 2002 Conference on May 13 and 14, 2002. The event will take place at the University's Roone Arledge Auditorium, Lerner Hall, New York City.

Preceding the World Summit on Sustainable Development, scheduled for August 2002 in Johannesburg, South Africa, the State of the Planet Conference will bring together leading international scientists, opinion-makers, and policy experts to explore the theme "Science And Sustainability."

Recordings of the conference proceedings will be available in the CCNMTL Media Archive right after the conference, along with other CCNMTL-produced recordings, including the State of the Planet 1999 conference. Faculty members are invited to use these recordings in their courses by including links to them in their course websites. Recorded lectures can be used for classroom presentation and student use.
