The 2022 Colloquium on the Environment was co-presented by the Sustainability Institute and the Institutes of Energy and the Environment. As with past colloquia, the goal was to feature a prominent expert to galvanize discussions and initiatives across the Penn State community on current topics related to energy and/or the environment.
This year, we were honored to present L. Hunter Lovins, president and founder of Natural Capitalism Solutions, a non-profit founded in 2002 to champion sustainable development. A renowned author and champion of sustainable development for over 35 years, Hunter has consulted on business, economic development, sustainable agriculture, energy, water, security, and climate policies for scores of governments, communities, and companies worldwide. Within the United States, she has consulted for heads of state, departments of defense, energy agencies and hundreds of state and local agencies.
Lovins’ keynote address was delivered on Wednesday, April 6, 2022 at 7 p.m. (EDT). A recording of her talk is available here.
