Description

The Practical Pursuit of Sustainability – Tuesday 26th February 2019. Public Lecture.

Professor Pamela Matson, Stanford University.

Sustainability is a term widely used by many different groups – from corporations to the international development community to academic institutions and non-profits – sometimes with different meanings and different goals. In this talk, Pamela Matson will draw common threads among the different uses, and illustrate how systems thinking and a capital assets framework can be used by all of them to increase the likelihood of accomplishing sustainability goals.

Pamela is an interdisciplinary sustainability scientist, academic leader, and organizational strategist from Stanford University. Her research addresses a range of environment and sustainability issues, including sustainability of agricultural systems and vulnerability and resilience of particular people and places to climate change. With multi-disciplinary teams of researchers, managers, and decision makers, she has worked to develop agricultural approaches that reduce environmental impacts while improving human wellbeing.

Professor Matson is the Tellus Mater Distinguished Fellow 2018/19
