What in the world are we thinking about? CIGI takes part in CU Expo 2011
Waterloo - The Centre for International Governance Innovation is pleased to take part in CU Expo 2011, a Canadian-led conference expected to draw 600 people to Waterloo Region from May 10-14.
The CU Expo provides an opportunity for global issues to be discussed at a local level, and to raise awareness about the positive impact that community-university partnerships can have locally and on a larger scale for social change.
“What in the world are we thinking about? is the theme of CIGI’s site visit, and we plan on providing those in attendance on May 12 with a great overview of what CIGI researches, how CIGI interacts with global partners, and how CIGI seeks to contribute to global peace and prosperity,” said Fred Kuntz, Vice President of Public Affairs at CIGI.
CIGI’s presentation at 2:00 p.m., in the historic Seagram Room, will feature a discussion on the think tank’s Africa Initiative, as well as presentations from students who were recently funded to take part in an economics conference at Bretton Woods.
Following this session, CIGI will host the CU Expo workshop Science Shops: Advanced Reflections on Changing Environments, featuring Norbert Steinhaus and Henk A. J. Mulder. This session will focus on the role and evolution of Science Shops as providers of research for the public good.
