The Arizona Institutes for Resilience (AIR) International Programs is coordinating a cross-campus initiative to establish the University of Arizona as a thought leader in addressing global challenges related to resilience. We seek to mobilize University of Arizona faculty, staff, and students with experience, expertise, and interest in climate change, conflict, human rights, global health, food security, migration, water resources, and other resilience-related themes.

This in-person, 1.5-day symposium provides an interactive forum to showcase University of Arizona global resilience-related activities and to create a strategy for responding to opportunities for research, training, and outreach support.
