For Immediate Release: New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) and Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications (NUPT) Host a 21st Century Global Initiative called Think Green: Energy, Education, Environmental Initiatives

Beijing, December 8, 2009 -- NYIT and NUPT will host a two-day global forum in Nanjing on April 7-9, 2010, that will bring together experts from the world’s leading companies as well as distinguished United States and Chinese government officials and university presidents and other leaders in higher education to explore sustainability challenges and solutions, technological and policy breakthroughs, as well as educational programs positioned to drive changes in energy practices that will benefit the world at large. The environment or “green” is one of today’s most timely topics. “Think Green” uses “green” as a platform to discuss challenges, opportunities and innovation in technology, higher education, architecture and finance.

"As educators our noblest role is to create the knowledge and human capital that will serve the local and global communities now and in the future," said NYIT President Edward Guiliano, Ph.D. "The good news is that sustainability initiatives are within the reach of everyone…Some quite simple yet can have a clear and measurable impact locally and globally.”

Dr. Richard Pizer, NYIT provost and vice president for academic affairs, and Dr. Huang Wei, Deputy President, NUPT, hosted an introductory discussion on the event today in Beijing. They highlighted the unique opportunities offered by this global forum which will provide intuitive, innovative and intelligent solutions to three of the key challenges of the 21st century – energy, education and the environment.

They stressed the educational aspect. The forum will bring leading Chinese and American educators into the discussion of energy and the environment and the important role higher education in particular can play in meeting current challenges. Leading universities and companies from around the world are expected to unveil new innovations, research and projects during the forum.

The timing of the forum will be ideal to discuss issues such as post-Copenhagen climate change forward-looking policies, and China - US investments in new industries and technologies with a growing list of distinguished supporting organizations that includes The United States Environmental Protection Agency, The American Institute for Chemical Engineers (including Sustainable Engineering Forum and Institute for Sustainability, and Environmental Division), Waste-to-Energy Research and Technology Council, Earth Engineering Center of Columbia University, Omni Construction.
