International Conference on
Circular Economy and Regional Sustainable Development

Hangzhou, China, 01-04 November 2005

The first of its kind in China, the conference will bring together scientists, engineers, industry representatives, and governmental entities to consider sustainable development. Given the rapid growth of China's economy and redistribution of its population, there is increasing recognition that resource exploitation by industrial, agricultural and urban development activities represents a potential serious threat to China's natural resources and ecosystems. The motivation for the conference is to develop strategies for sustainable development and targets for reduced consumption. ESA is a co-sponsor of the conference, along with the Ecological Society of China, China Society of Natural Resources, Zhejiang Association of Science and Technology, and several additional organizations from the US and other countries.

ESA members are encouraged to plan to attend this important meeting. Deadline to submit an abstract is August 31, 2005. Your input will make all the difference to the success of the Conference. For more information please browse the Conference website: www.2005cersd.org.cn.
