Hunter Lovins, President and Founder of Natural Capitalism Solutions, will give a lecture at Vassar College on Monday, November 14, 2016 at 5:00pm in Taylor Hall Auditorium, Room 203. This event is free and open to the public.

Lovins, a professor of sustainable management at Bard College, will discuss the recent ratification of the Paris climate agreement, the U.S. general elections, and how students may pursue career opportunities that support what she terms “an economy in service of life.”

“Lovins believes that citizens, communities, and companies, working together are the most dynamic problem-solving force on the planet,” says Alistair Hall, Sustainability Coordinator at Vassar College. “She has devoted her career to building teams that can create and implement practice and affordable solutions to the problems facing us in creating a sustainable future.”
