Summer School on Global Sustainability

Welcome to the 2009 Global Sustainability Summer School home page.

This intensive two-week program explores global sustainability from many perspectives with particular focus on problems posed by climate change. With enrollment limited to 30 participants, the school will include graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, junior and senior faculty, and individuals from the private sector.

The program consists of lectures and discussion sessions. These will be supplemented by a one-day mini-conference on July 18 featuring additional presentations. Topics include population and social development and its effects on energy resource consumption; climate and energy economics; energy technologies and associated paths to transition to low-carbon energy infrastructure; land use; and innovation and technology.
