Archive: Just Sustainability Transitions Seminars

The Just Sustainability Transitions Seminars gathered scholars, practitioners, policymakers, and students from across a wide variety of disciplines to discuss the environmental and societal challenges of the Anthropocene and the ways to pursue just and sustainable pathways.

The seminars were hybrid, held both in-person on Georgetown University’s Main Campus, and online on Zoom. They took place on Fridays, from 9:00 – 10:00 AM (EST). On site attendance was limited to 10 persons.
