A collaboration by a foundation of global reach and a research university to do together more than they can do separately on significant unsolved problems of global society in the areas of marine resources conservation, threats to ecosystem and environmental health caused by toxic chemicals, and the absence of effective governance structures which promote sustainability.
The broad goal is to contribute to sustainability on Earth through four general categories of presentations:
- Science and 21st Century Sustainability
- Law and Governance in 21st Century Sustainability
- An Empowered Civil Society in 21st Century Sustainability
- Imperatives for Action
The Newkirk Center for Science & Society is a co-sponsor of the Toward a Sustainable 21st Century series.
