ATHGO International Symposia
University of California, Los Angles (UCLA)
February 27-March 1, 2008

Application deadline: February 15, 2008

From February 27-March 1, 2008 a diverse group of 300 students and young entrepreneurs will convene at UCLA’s Tom Bradley International Hall for ATHGO’s Fifth Annual Global Forum titled “Global Warming: Changes YOUR Attitude! Not the Weather.” The four-day practicum based event will focus on the most pressing environmental issues concerning Global Warming and Climate Change. Participants will discuss and explore the effects of Global Warming, its effects and implications, various solutions and the impediments to systemic change.

The Forum will commence with Al Gore's Climate Project presentation. Participants will find out the causes, consequences and ramifications of global warming from world class scientists. Diplomats will address the issue of political will required to pursue various legislative and regulatory changes in their countries, and representatives from international institutions will address the efforts that the international community is pursuing, including the challenges and obstacles associated with establishing consensus amongst the developing and developed world. Senior executives from the private sector will outline the latest technological innovations, from alternative energy products to more environmentally friendly solutions, and the influence that incentives and other regulatory requirements have had in redefining basic business models and modes of operation, regardless of industry.

ATHGO International Symposia
United Nations Headquarters, New York
April 23-25, 2008

Application deadline: April 11, 2008

The long misunderstood concept of global governance is gaining more visibility in the 21st century partly due to changes in power distribution of many nations (e.g. unification of European continent), increase in the number of international institutions (e.g. financial – regional development banks; judicial – courts and tribunals), swelling of high-profile international treaties (i.e. in trade, environment, against terrorism) and ultimately the rapid infiltration of technology into almost all aspects of governance and operation. From the surface, the current affairs and realities appear to lead people to common governing systems and exchange.
