The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), The University of Queensland (UQ), and University of Exeter (Exeter), share a strong dedication to the advancement of sustainable development. The three universities have separately established the CUHK-Exeter Joint Centre for Environmental Sustainability and Resilience (ENSURE) and the QUEX Institute to tackle frontier challenges emerging from the changing environment and its influence on planetary health.

To share current work and to inspire collaboration, the CUHK-UQ-Exeter Joint Symposium on Environmental Sustainability will showcase some of the projects undertaken by QUEX and ENSURE in the areas of marine science, air pollution, climate adaptation and conservation, and micro plastics pollution. The event will feature a panel discussion to shed light on the power of global partnership in a post-COVID world. The Symposium is also a prelude to an exploratory workshop, to be held on 16 November, on building strong researcher links to explore collaborative projects.
