Project summary: Brundtland donated half of her grant (NT$5 million) to NCKU, which organized and executed the “Gro Brundtland Week of Women in Sustainable Development.” It invites young female researchers from neighboring developing nations to speak throughout Taiwan and exchange views and ideas with their peers.
