Business Stepping Up: The Lovins Series
<<<<< TICKETS HERE >>>>>
 
As President Trump pursues a regressive, isolationist agenda, business is stepping up to address climate change, promote equality and protect human rights, and create economic opportunity. Join sustainability pioneer Hunter Lovins for a conversation series with industry experts to explore this shift in progressive business leadership.

February's Business Stepping Up conversation will feature Eban Goodstein, Director of the Graduate Programs in Sustainability at Bard College. He will be discussing the role of business in efforts to address climate change. Companies have long understood the impacts that global climate change will have on their operations -- can the business community drive climate action given the current political landscape?

Eban Goodstein is the author of three books: Economics and the Environment, (John Wiley and Sons: 2017) now in its eighth edition; Fighting for Love in the Century of Extinction: How Passion and Politics Can Stop Global Warming (University Press of New England: 2007); and The Trade-off Myth: Fact and Fiction about Jobs and the Environment. (Island Press: 1999). Articles by Goodstein have appeared in among other outlets, The Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, Land Economics, Ecological Economics, and Environmental Management. His research has been featured in The New York Times, Scientific American, The Economist, and USA Today. In recent years, Goodstein has coordinated climate education events at over 2500 colleges, universities, high schools and other institutions across the country He serves on the editorial board of Sustainability: The Journal of Record, and is on the Steering Committee of Economics for Equity & the Environment. He is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Follett Corporation, and is on the advisory committee for Chevrolet's Clean Energy Initiative.
