Series Introduction:

Seven billion and growing. Drastic global biodiversity losses. The looming spectre of global climate change. We have a long way to go to forge a sustainable future. Sustainability is a concept and value that only a minority of Americans embrace, with the remainder of the population unaware, skeptical, or unconvinced that actual behavioral change is needed.

Earth in Peril - Leaders Needed: Leadership is clearly one part building a sustainable path to our collective future. The purpose of this lecture series is to expose an audience of students, staff, faculty, and public to a variety of leaders and their stories, in order to encourage a personal path to leadership.

The weekly series for Spring of 2014 invites national and local leaders to share their stories of how they came to rise to the challenge of leadership. The collection of leaders that are participating reflects a diversity of pathways to leadership that can help us understand working for change and inspire many of us to continue to explore our own pathways to contributing to a sustainable world.
