What Will Transitions to a Green Economy Look Like? Find out Wednesday, 2/17 at 12:30 p.m. EST

Live from DC: Transitions to a Green Economy

Wednesday, February 17, 2021 :: 12:30-1:30 p.m. EST

Eleven percent of the world’s population is currently vulnerable to climate change impacts, such as droughts, floods, heat waves, extreme weather events and sea-level rise. According to the International Labour Organization (ILO) 2018 World Employment and Social Outlook report a shift to a just and greener economy could create 24 million new jobs globally by 2030 if the right policies are put in place. Green growth strategies need to be flexible enough to take advantage of new technologies and unexpected opportunities and be nimble enough to abandon one approach if a better one becomes available.

The Center for Careers and Internships’ Middlebury Professional Network, in collaboration with Middlebury in DC, the Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs, and the Franklin Environmental Center bring you a discussion among professionals who have a variety of vantage points on the transitions to a green economy. 

This discussion will be conducted via Zoom webinar, connecting the professional guests with students from both the Middlebury and Monterey campuses, as well as, alumni and parents of the Middlebury community.

The panelists include:

  • Host: Jon Isham, Professor of Economics/Environmental Studies, Middlebury College
  • Jane Leggett ’78, Specialist in Environmental and Energy Policy, Library of Congress
  • Suzanne Dael ’02, Climate Change Mitigation and Energy, European Environment Agency
  • Lauren Sanchez ’11, Deputy Secretary of Climate Policy & Intergovernmental Relations, California Environmental Protection Agency

SAVE THE DATE! Join Expert Alumni Panelists as they Discuss Challenges in Cyber Security

As of 2020, at least a third of all data passes through the cloud, and within five years, there will be over 50 billion smart connected devices in the world. 5G and increased bandwidth will enable machines, robots, and autonomous vehicles to collect and transfer more data than ever, leading to advances in the area of the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart machinery. The recent Russian cyber attacks through SolarWinds serves notice that with these technological advances come great concerns regarding data privacy, data security, and how cyberspace should be governed.
