The 2023 iSEE Congress will address the challenges associated with globally interconnected systems — and the need for partnerships and coordination to tackle planetary-scale challenges including infectious disease emergence, biodiversity loss, and climate change.

This year's keynote speaker will be Felicia Keesing, the David and Rosalie Rose Distinguished Professor of Science, Mathematics, and Computing from Bard College. 

iSEE Congress 2023 will highlight how interdisciplinary collaborations can help tackle the enormous challenge of coordinating global responses to crises of planetary scale. By bringing together experts from multiple disciplines, the symposium will foster further collaborations and provide a public platform for the community to engage in pressing concerns.

This year’s Congress has received funding support from the Center for Global Studies’ U.S. Department of Education Title VI Natural Resource Center Grant in Global Studies.
