Defining Sustainable Development: Land Use, Climate Change, and Water Resources November 7th and 8th, 2008

The conference will bring professors, practitioners, students, and community leaders together to consider what sustainability really means and what role law may have in accomplishing sustainable development.  It is organized by the Environmental Law Society ("ELS") and the Development-Related Outreach Program for Sustainability ("DROPS").

Speakers with a wide variety of education and experience have been asked to consider what sustainable development is and how the broad goals implied by the term "sustainable" can be achieved.  Together, they'll explore the concept of sustainability through law, ethics, business, planning, building, engineering, agriculture, and natural resources.
