– Our Environmental Program is an outgrowth of a recent wave of academic research, public interest, and geopolitical awareness concerning human interactions, dependency, and impact on the environment.
Our objective is to increase public awareness of environmental issues, both current and historical, while providing space for public discourse, engagement, and understanding.
