Sustainability is at the heart of much of what we do, teach, and value at Middlebury.
Many alums have carried a commitment to sustainability directly into their professions—often with national and international impact.
What have they been doing on the frontlines to achieve a more just, sustainable future?
What are their thoughts on tackling some of the world’s most pressing crises?

This is the second event in the new Global Sustainability Alum Speaker Series, which invites Midd grads back to campus to discuss these issues and more.
