Sustainability: Innovation Driver for the 21st Century

We are all familiar with the term 'sustainability' but what does it imply for us today and the future? Join Forestry Professor David Cohen as he walks through how global activity affects sustainability and innovation and why the two are tied together. He'll look at globalization of yesterday, today and tomorrow; the drivers for change: population, shifting of global economic power, pressure on natural resources and ecosystem degradation; practical models of sustainability; innovation at different stages and how sustainability is a leading driver for it; and how all of this affects the global, national and regional forest sector. Walk away with a better understanding of sustainability and how it is driving change in the twenty-first century.
