Just Sustainability Transitions Seminars

The Just Sustainable Transitions Seminars gather 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 are hybrid, held both in person on Georgetown University’s Main Campus, and online on Zoom. They take place on Fridays, from 9:00 – 10:00 AM (EST). On site attendance is limited to 10 persons, and the location may sometimes change from one week to the next: if you wish to attend in person, please register for JSTS seminars one week prior to the event in order to receive location information.

For online attendance, please join us using this link. You just have to join at the time of the seminar.
