Showcase 1

On April 25 Earth Institute students were honored for their research in environment and sustainable development at the annual Student Research Showcase. The event recognized the research contributions of student interns, research assistants and travel grant recipients and their faculty and research advisors. The work topics ranged from biodiversity, urban planning and earth sciences to international development.

Seventy-six undergraduate, graduate and PhD students received funding to support their projects. Research was conducted at various Earth Institute Centers, Millennium Villages in Africa, and across the globe, with students traveling to the Middle East, South America, Asia and Central America.

A short video about students’ experiences researching and addressing current environmental and sustainable development issues was shown at the Student Research Showcase and included an introduction by Earth Institute Director Jeffrey Sachs. To view last year’s video, click here.
