The Sustainability Speaker Series brings creative, pragmatic, and practice-based environmental professionals to campus. The series is primarily intended to support students in the International Environmental Policy program, but all lectures are open to the public. The series covers issues of environmental policy, social and environmental justice, and ocean sustainability, and is sponsored and hosted by the Center for the Blue Economy. Co-sponsors include the Nancy Eccles and Homer M. Hayward Family Foundation, Carmel Jewish Film Festival, Monterey Bay Community Power and KAZU radio. We invite the public to come and be inspired by forward-thinking speakers who present cutting-edge solutions to complex problems across a wide variety of fields.
Although the series has concluded, many of the past events listed below have videos available for viewing, speaker materials and recommended reading. We will list our fall 2019 lineup of speakers and events by late August.
