How to attend

Speaker: Jeffrey Sachs

Jeffrey Sachs is a globally recognized economist and sustainable development leader. Dr. Sachs' work with the UN in the development of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) has informed and influenced both public and private sector sustainability initiatives worldwide.

Based on this experience, Dr. Sachs has a unique vantage point from which to witness the impact that economic policies have had in driving both climate change and a host of related environmental and social impacts.

Dr. Sachs will describe both the ways current policies perpetuate these economic impacts and opportunities for redirecting the power of the economy towards regenerating both human and environmental systems in ways that can both stabilize the climate and address a variety of other related crises.
