Departmental Event - Imagining Environmental Governance in the Anthropocene

Thursday, September 08, 2022, 09:00am - 05:00pm

"Imagining Environmental Governance in the Anthropocene"

As global environmental problems like climate change and biodiversity loss become more pressing, global environmental governance to collectively address these issues becomes a significant part of the solution. Please join us September 8th and 9th at the Cook student center for a workshop that seeks to understand key questions in environmental governance and how Rutgers faculty, across disciplines and schools, may help answer them. 


Funded by Rutgers Global and the Institute for Earth Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences and co-sponsored by the Rutgers Climate Institute and Department of Human Ecology, the first day of this workshop will host three keynote talks by internationally recognized leaders in environmental governance on topics such as how environmental governance systems 1) manage uncertainties and unknowables 2) work to facilitate stakeholder participation from diverse interests and 3) address flows across ecosystem and geopolitical boundaries. 

On the second day – Rutgers faculty and students will have the opportunity to brainstorm and identify ways in which Rutgers may build educational, research and service capacity in this field. We view this as one step to help identify where social sciences and ecosystem and climate sciences at Rutgers can engage in a research agenda on how to better govern earth systems.

Rutgers faculty, staff, and students may register for the workshop here.
