Quarterly meetings are open to all; agendas are planned and organized by Network members.

Our next Sustainability Network meeting will be on July 28th.  Dr. Thomas Joseph Doherty will talk about ecopsychology, which reveals how emotional and mental health is dependent on sustainability and one’s relationship with nature.  Dr. Doherty, featured recently in the NYTimes,  will describe the benefits of green spaces for stress reduction and productivity, diverse ways people understand their connections to the natural world, and how to cope with issues like climate change and the recent Gulf Oil Disaster.  How can an ecopsychology perspective can foster motivation and resilience and inform the best practices of sustainability professionals?
