Panel on Cooperation in Energy, Transportation and Environment fields in Northeast Asia at Global Peace Convention

The recent Global Peace Convention in Seoul (November 28-29, 2011) brought together a remarkably diverse group of individuals from NGOs, business and academics to discuss the future of North-South relations. The concept of addressing the North-South division by inviting the input of youth from around the world was particularly striking. See the introductory video for Global Peace Convention for a sense of the approach to North-South relations:

I served as the head of the panel on Energy, the Environment and Transportation. we had a very diverse group of scholars and practitioners speak about concrete approaches to cooperation. The papers will soon be available.
