Blogging from Abu Dhabi: A Sustainable World

From Jan. 18 – 21, heads of state, scientists, industry leaders and policymakers from around the world will gather in Abu Dhabi to discuss strategies for a sustainable energy future. Now in its third year, the World Future Energy Summit has become what the New York Times has dubbed “the Davos on renewable energy.”abu_dhabi_map_small.jpg

Catherine Joseph and Sonja Sahlsten , both sophomores at  the Pratt School of Engineering, will not only be there to discuss Duke’s Smart Home Program specifically, and the university’s sustainability efforts in general, but they will be blogging during their whole time there.

After returning to campus, they plan to present their experiences to the Duke community at 7 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 11, in Schiciano Auditorium, Side B.
