Protection and Prosperity: A New Environmental Research Agenda for a Changing World

“The nation is at an environmental crossroads where the confluence of unprecedented global environmental change and transformative new capabilities create both an imperative and a responsibility,” according to a report by the National Science Foundation’s Advisory Committee for Environmental Research and Education. America's Future: Environmental Research and Education for a Thriving Century: A 10-Year Outlook calls for a new interdisciplinary environmental and engineering research and education agenda, supported by NSF and other funders, that seeks to change the trajectory of current socio-environmental trends. Recognizing the value of environmental science is key to moving past the outdated idea that economic prosperity and environmental protection are incompatible, according to the authors. Please join us for a briefing on the report and for a dialogue on the connections between the environment, education and America’s future.
