November 17th-20th, 2016

A collaboration between UT Austin, Tongji University (Shanghai), East China Normal University, (Shanghai), and the International Society for Ecological Wisdom, the conference brings together over forty presenters—the best and brightest minds in the field of ecological wisdom. Former UTSOA dean Fritz Steiner, now dean of PennDesign, will provide the keynote address. The three-day event includes speakers from around the globe, and concludes with a field trip to a still-operating irrigation complex from the early 1700s, as well as a retooled section of the irrigation system that became the "Riverwalk" in downtown San Antonio.

Registration is now open for the second International Wisdom Symposium.
