Environment & Sustainability

Scientists have confirmed that human impact on global environments is not sustainable, making issues surrounding the environment and sustainability some of the most pressing of our time. Experts have proposed the term “Anthropocene” to describe a period of geologic time during which human beings’ effect on the planet and their environments have had a global impact. While individuals can make important strides toward sustainability through personal choices, only through collaboration and rapid change can we hope to build a sustainable relationship with our environments. In the spirit of such collaboration, one of the Lang Center’s flagship projects in this area is the President’s Sustainability Research Fellowship, a partnership with the President’s Office, the Office of Sustainability, and the Environmental Studies program.
