On November 3 and 4, Yale University will host the Yale Environmental Sustainability Summit. The second edition of the biannual event has a focus on sustainability-driven change makers, specifically on catalyzing, cultivating, and connecting them. The Center Director, Professor Paul Anastas, will participate in the Closing Plenary Panel “Moving Ahead: Change Making, Sound Science, and the Rule of Law” to be held at Burke Auditorium, Kroon Hall.
The summit is open to the general public, but registration is required.
Environmental sustainability. Social justice. Economic development. Global equality. These priorities shape our present and the way we respond to them will define our shared future. The 2nd Yale Environmental Sustainability Summit (YESS) will bring together change makers from diverse spheres to share effective models of sustainability and build skills for action. YESS aspires to catalyze the Yale alumni community to take a fresh look at global “unsustainability” and cultivate solutions that connect people and priorities. The 2017 Summit will offer attendees the opportunity to strengthen social and professional networks, gain new knowledge, and expand their toolkits.
