The quest for a sustainable future is a global concern. Every member of the United Nations, for example, is working towards 17 interlinked Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that are designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all." But what is sustainability? More than just an environmental concern, it is also critical for achieving social justice, gender equality, food safety, and more. At this event, a panel of expert speakers will explore the scope of sustainability, offer tips for how you can support a sustainable future in your life and work, and discuss how their work intersects with sustainability. Our panelists include Thomas Chandler (Ph.D. ’09) from the National Center for Disaster Preparedness, Jaime McBeth (M.S. ’14) from the Fortune Society, and Raksha Vasudevan from TC’s Center for Sustainable Futures. TC Faculty Member and Founding Director of the Center for Sustainable Futures, Oren Pizmony-Levy, will moderate the discussion.
This event is co-hosted by Alumni Relations and the Center for Sustainable Futures.
