Description

Dr. Newman, the Director of Sustainability and Lecturer in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at MIT, will join us for an interactive webinar to explore and demonstrate how institutions of higher education are positioned to respond to and address the unprecedented challenges of climate change and sustainable development. Using MIT as a case study, she will provide insight and shed light on the processes and structures she has established to transform MIT’s campus as a model. Dr. Newman will discuss her unique role in overseeing MIT’s sustainability and climate commitments for the campus and how her office leverages the campus as a test bed for research, teaching and innovation.

Participants will leave with ideas on how to address, or continue to address, sustainability and climate at their institutions.
