Event and speakers

On September 29, 2021, ESI held an event titled “Educating for a Sustainable Future: Mobilizing Higher Ed for the Climate Century.” Speakers from four universities discussed the ways they are changing their institutions’ curricula and practices to provide a quality sustainability education, and the need for cross-university collaboration to scale up successes and build a movement for teaching sustainability in higher ed.

The speakers would love to work with you to advance the ideas addressed at this event. They are:

  • SARAH MEYERS, Education Program Manager, MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative
  • CHRISTOPHER BOONE, Dean of the College of Global Futures and Professor in the School of Sustainability, Arizona State University
  • PAMELA MATSON, Richard and Rhoda Goldman Professor in Environmental Studies, Director of the Change Leadership for Sustainability Program, and Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute, Stanford University
  • ALEX HINIKER, Executive Fellow for Sustainability Initiatives and a key member of the Sustainability Initiative Leadership, Carnegie Mellon University
