Welcome to the Nobel Cause Symposium Series


Nobel Laureates Symposium rescheduled for 22 - 25 April, 2015

The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and the Asia Society Hong Kong (ASHK) Center are delighted to announce the new date for the 4th Nobel Laureates Symposium on Global Sustainability "4C: Changing Climate, Changing Cities" which will take place at the Asia Society Hong Kong Center from 22nd to 25th April, 2015.

Special Thanks go to the partners and sponsors of the symposium who decided to continue their financial support of the symposium.

The Nobel Laureates Symposium on Global Sustainability did not take place in October 2014 in Hong Kong as previously planned. The co-organizers took the difficult decision to postpone the event due to the sustained disruptions in the city.

The Potsdam-Asia Society 2015 Hong Kong Symposium will be the first in the series to be held outside Europe with a strong focus on the East Asia and Pacific region. It will bring together Nobel Laureates, eminent scientists, policy makers, global and business leaders and key community stakeholders. How the urbanization of Asia proceeds will affect its populations and have critical impacts on climate change with global consequences. The Laureates discuss presentations from experts on subjects that are crucial to planetary health and our survival. Many participants will be from China and regional countries at ministerial and other levels. The concern and involvement of Laureates emphasizes the importance of the debate to governments and decision-making bodies.
