Sustainability Science Program

Frontiers in Sustainable Development Speaker Series (2009-2010)

Convenors: William Clark and Nancy Dickson

Description: Sustainable development has emerged, in the words of former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, as one of the three great challenges facing the international community in the opening decades of the new millennium. Long an arena of activism and practical experimentation, sustainable development has more recently begun to build a tradition of critical scholarship. This occasional speaker series hosts presentations and discussions of such scholarship and experimentation by researchers and practitioners from Harvard and visitors from around the world. Students, fellows, research staff, and faculty are invited to attend.
