    Together, Building Sustainable Communities

    In an era of climate change, consumer addiction and natural disasters, how do we come together to build a culture of sustainability in our communities? In this provocative talk, world-renowned scientist and professor Jacqueline McGlade will explore how we can create ‘collaborative ecosystems’ to help people and their environments flourish.
