This event will take place on September 12 - 15. Are you and your company on top of the megatrends in sustainability? The Yale Sustainability Leadership Forum is an intense program exploring sustainability as an overarching framework for life in the 21st century. An integrated policy concept, sustainability diverges from approaches to environmental protection and economic development that were pursued in the 20th century.

Professionals from all backgrounds and sectors are invited to apply to this intensive program featuring multidisciplinary thought leadership on sustainability. Integrating energy, finance, policy, law, industrial ecology, green design and engineering, land conservation, environmental communication, climate negotiation, and more, this program examines sustainability as an integrated policy concept.

The Forum will bring together a diverse set of thought leaders, industry practitioners, policy experts, and world-class scholars working on the leading-edge of sustainability.

The Forum is designed for professionals from all sectors of society: finance, industry, academia, government, and not-for profit. The Forum offers both the conceptual and practical tools to help policy makers at all levels of government, public and private-sector executives, and anyone in a leadership role to advance sustainability in their workplace. The Forum is indispensable for those wanting or needing to stay abreast of the major changes in environmental thinking in recent years.

The diversity of the class sets this program apart, providing participants with a diverse network of professionals engaged in meaningful sustainability work across sectors and across the globe. Forum speakers are at the top of their respective fields, and together represent the thought leadership of sustainability. They are carefully selected for their ability to deliver the sustainability curriculum in an engaging, crosscutting, and dynamic way. They include faculty drawn from several departments across Yale University and beyond.

This program is indispensable for those wanting or needing to stay abreast of the major changes in environmental thinking in recent years.
