September 8 and 9, 2022. Imagining Environmental Governance in the Anthropocene: Creating Governance that’s Participatory, Boundary Spanning, and Knowledge-Based – A workshop for Rutgers faculty, staff and students . Sponsored by Rutgers Global, Rutgers Institute for Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences, Rutgers Department of Human Ecology, and Rutgers Climate Institute.  Register here.

As global environmental problems like climate change and biodiversity loss become more pressing, global environmental governance to collectively address these issues becomes a significant part of the solution.  Please join us September 8th and 9th at the Cook Student Center for a workshop that seeks to understand key questions in environmental governance and how Rutgers faculty, across disciplines and schools, may help answer them. Funded by Rutgers Global and the Institute for Earth Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences and co-sponsored by the Rutgers Climate Institute and Department of Human Ecology, the first day of this workshop, will host three keynote talks by internationally recognized leaders in environmental governance on topics such as how environmental governance systems 1) manage uncertainties and unknowables 2) work to facilitate stakeholder participation from diverse interests and 3) address flows across ecosystem and geopolitical boundaries.  On the second day – Rutgers faculty and students will have the opportunity to brainstorm and identify ways in which Rutgers may build educational, research and service capacity in this field.
