Think Tank

The College of the Environment will gather annually a group of three Wesleyan faculty members, a scholar of prominence from outside Wesleyan, and undergraduate students into a year-long academic think tank on a critical environmental issue. The aim of the think tank is not only to generate a deeper understanding of the thematic issue, but also to produce scholarly works that will influence national/international thinking and action on the issue. The think tank should serve as a focal point for the global intellectual community concerned with the environment. Scholars and students in the think tank are expected to produce scholarly works by the end of the academic year.

The focus of our 2018-19 Think Tank is how humans relate to and value the non-human part of the world, as illustrated in our 2018 Where on Earth Are We Going? symposium.
