You are invited to join an interactive session to foster dialogue amongst Yale Alumni on the resource challenges and opportunities that have the potential to transform a sustainable global economy. Matt Rogers '89, Yale SOM alum and author of "The Resource Revolution" will frame the conversation by providing some context and insight from his book. Matt's presentation will prompt questions and engagement that we will dig into during smaller group discussions. Stuart DeCew '11 from the Yale Center for Business and the Environment will build on Matt's comments to address how this work is being adapted and used in global online education and alumni engagement on sustainability at Yale. Participants will then be invited to join a small group discussions facilitated by Yale Alumni working in specific topic areas (energy, water, food, transportation, etc).
