The inaugural Yale Sustainability Leadership Forum (September 21-23, 2016) is a three-day program exploring sustainability as an overarching framework for life in the 21st century. An integrated policy concept, sustainability diverges from approaches to environmental protection and economic development that were pursued in the 20th century. The program focuses specifically on the megatrends distinguishing sustainability from its 20th century precursors.
Team-taught, the Forum will be organized around modules that each provide in-depth topical study, and will bring together a diverse set of thought leaders, industry practitioners, policy experts, and scholars working on the leading edge of sustainability. The Forum is directed by Daniel C. Esty, the Hillhouse Professor of Environmental Law and Policy at Yale University.
