This event focuses on how women navigate careers in sustainability, exploring the female perspective on professional development and advancement in this growing field. The panel features an impressive group of women working in diverse sustainability roles, including sustainable finance, corporate sustainability, and green building. The panelists will speak to some of the specific challenges and opportunities for women in this field, as well as to some of the universal challenges that many professional women face today – such as finding mentors, managing family responsibilities, dealing with bias, and more. The discussion explores the challenges and solutions for women at all levels of their careers. The panel will also provide insight into leadership behaviors and practices that help support career growth. The goal of this event is to foster a thoughtful dialogue around the issues facing women sustainability professionals, and how to achieve a more inclusive working environment in sustainability. A networking reception will follow the panel, from 6:00pm - 7:00pm. This event is hosted by the Earth Institute, the MS in Sustainability Management Program, and the MPA in Environmental Science and Policy Program.

The New York Public Library Author Talk series present, Steven Cohen, executive director of Columbia University's Earth Institute. Professor Cohen reveals how cities are embracing sustainability through infrastructure, transportation systems, and more. Conversations on sustainability often center on conservation and efforts to preserve nature outside of the city. But for the first time in human history, the majority of people on Earth live in urban areas. What roles can city planner and city dweller play to ensure a sustainable city? In his new book, The Sustainable City, Steven Cohen argues that cities must coexist with nature. Many places are already investing in the infrastructure of the future―renewable energy, energy efficiency, mass and personal transit, and advanced sewage and waste management, for example but, according to Cohen, the modern city still has a long way to go. In this talk, the author surveys the urban systems of the 21st century, detailing policies and projects underway in cities around the world. Sustainability issues, from transportation and food waste to renewable energy, have an enduring impact on city residents. By organizing for sustainable infrastructure, Cohen argues, citizens have the power to advocate for their city's long-term prosperity. Steven Cohen will be joined in conversation with Eric Sanderson. A Q and A session will follow.

Join Dr. David Walker, the Higgins Professors in the Dept. of Earth and Environmental Sciences, and Louise Bolge as they discuss they studies of bricks in the US Virgin Islands and what they reveal about historical events. What if someone asked you what was the geographic origin of a brick in an archaeological site? The question of which country constructed specific, early New World settlements might hinge on the answer to this question. The size, shape, markings, and color of the brick may be somewhat informative about the source of the brick. But these are sometimes ambiguous markers of brick provenance.

What if someone asked you what was the geographic origin of a brick in an archaeological site? The question of which country constructed specific, early New World settlements might hinge on the answer to this question. The size, shape, markings, and color of the brick may be somewhat informative about the source of the brick. But these are sometimes ambiguous markers of brick provenance. What then? In order to investigate whether trace element signatures might be informative about specific clay deposits that might have been the source of particular bricks, we analysed a range of bricks from both sides of the Atlantic in order to perhaps get a fix on the origin of the brick material in the construction of Fort Sint Kruys in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands.

Half day Satellite Session of the 2018 Consortium of Universities for Global Health's Annual Conference. Epidemics, like weather and climate, do not respect national borders. Since 2005 there has been increasing international cooperation on global health security. The Lancet Commission “Count Down on Health and Climate Change” Oct 2017 proposed access to climate services as a key indicator of adaptation and resilience to climate change for the health sector. As many health outcomes are climate sensitive there is increasing interest in integrating knowledge and information on climate variability and change into the operational activities for the control of infectious diseases, public health outcomes of disasters and nutrition. This satellite session will explore the intersection of climate variability and change and health priorities for vulnerable populations around the globe.

In the wake of President Trump’s announcement that he intends to have the United States leave the Paris climate accord, many American states, cities, and corporations declared: “We are still in.” Beyond the rhetoric, however, how strongly committed is America’s corporate sector to taking steps to reduce climate change? Can corporate actions on climate support, rather than detract from, growth in markets and profitability? How much impact are corporations feeling from the abrupt change in climate policies between the last US Administration and the current one? What kinds of climate policies are most favored by the corporate sector? As part of our on-going speaker series “Where Next on Climate?” the Center on Global Energy Policy is hosting a presentation and panel discussion on climate, energy, and development. Kevin Knobloch of Tufts University’s Climate Policy Lab will present results from a soon-to-be-completed research project entitled “The Relationship between Clean Energy/Climate Policy and Expanding Corporate Markets.” This project involved structured interviews with C-suite leaders in major corporations and private equity houses. After Knobloch’s presentation, we will have a panel discussion with: •    Kevin Knobloch, Tufts University •    Geoffrey Heal, Columbia Business School •    Nancy Meyer, Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) •    John MacWilliams, Center on Global Energy Policy Registration is required.

Connecting science to decision-making is critically important, particularly when it comes to sustainability, which affects our health and the natural systems we depend on. There are many ways in which scientific work directly impacts society, and sustainability practitioners face the difficult but crucial task of clearly communicating evidence-based scientific information to the public, to policy makers, and to private-sector decision-makers. This panel will explore the complex interface between science, management and policy. How is science integrated into the decision-making processes? What types and levels of analyses are needed to guide sustainability policies and programs? How are science and data used most effectively? Hear from expert panelists on the scientific tools needed for evidence-based actions. Panelists: • Thomas Jorling, former Commissioner of the NY State Department of Environmental Conservation and and former Vice President for Environmental Affairs, International Paper Co. • Sara Law, Vice President of Global Initiatives, Carbon Disclosure Project • Art Lerner-Lam, Deputy Director of Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, The Earth Institute, Columbia University • Richard Moss, former Chairman of the Federal Advisory Committee for the National Climate Assessment and Visiting Senior Research Scientist, Columbia University Moderator: Steve Cohen, Executive Director, The Earth institute and Professor of Practice, School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University
