Partnering Across Sectors to Increase the Impact of Sustainability Efforts

May 28, 2019 | 10:00-11:00 am PDT

As threats to sustainability become more urgent it is critical to reach across sectors to address these challenges. Fortunately, there are numerous examples where partnerships between the private and public sectors have yielded positive and surprising results. In this webinar Professor Pamela Matson and Professor Jim Leape will share lessons from their decades of experience working with NGOs, governments, and the private sector to advance sustainability efforts.

You Will Learn:
  • Why diverse collaborations are important to drive change in complex systems
  • A framework for addressing sustainability as a systems challenge
  • How this approach played out in an actual case—the global palm oil sector

This webinar will give you a preview of the Strategies for Sustainability professional education program. Courses online and at Stanford.
