Sustainability Symposium at Baldwin-Wallace College

A multi-faceted, interdisciplinary topic, sustainability seeks to identify effective ways in which society can transform itself for the future of humanity and the natural world in which we live? its environmental, political, social, cultural, ethical, technological, and economic dimensions. This two-day symposium provides an opportunity for B-W to further delve into the theme of sustainability and the specific challenges facing Northeast Ohio.

The keynote address on Oct. 20 will be by Stuart Hart. A leading authority on the implications of sustainable development and environmentalism for business strategy, Hart is the Samuel C. Johnson Chair of Sustainable Global Enterprise and Professor of Management at Cornell University. His book, Capitalism at the Crossroads, is in its second edition with a new foreword by Al Gore. Dr. Hart believes environmental meltdown and a widening gap between rich and poor pose challenges for global capitalism. He maintains that corporations' technology, resources, capacity and global research can accelerate transformation.

Events are free and open to the public. Agenda details here.
