The Path of Sustainable Development for the Emerging Economies

The Emerging Markets Symposium (EMS) was created in 2008 as an academic initiative of Green Templeton College (GTC). The EMS is an expression of GTC’s commitment to promote understanding of the issues of managing human welfare in the modern world and the flow of ideas across traditional disciplinary and professional boundaries.

Jeffrey Sachs, University Professor, Quetelet Professor of Sustainable Development and Professor of Health Policy and Management at Columbia University will deliver a lecture on Friday 13 January, 6pm, on the 2017 EMS theme of Health and the Environment in Emerging Markets. Professor Sachs is the recipient of numerous awards and honours, a prolific author and journalist and is widely regarded as one of the world’s most influential authorities on relationships between health and the natural and built environments.
