The 5th APRU Sustainable Cities & Landscapes Conference 2022

The 5th APRU Sustainable Cities and Landscapes Conference 2022 will be held on September 6 – 9  in Hawai’i. This will be an in-person SCL conference since 2019.

On the fifth year of the conference, we are gathering to reflect on the Program’s collective accomplishments. Together we bring policy-makers, researchers, and practitioners from across disciplines to find answers to the big social, urban, and ecological questions of our time.

The conference is organized by the Institute for Sustainability and Resilience of University of Hawai’i at Mānoa in collaboration with the APRUSustainable Cities and Landscapes Program.
