Sustainability and Environment

Previous Next

Addressing threats to the environment and actively encouraging sustainable practices requires cross-disciplinary engagement and outreach. Our Center collaborates with a wide range of stakeholders across the globe to create and deliver programs that are meaningful in the Brazilian context and elsewhere that can be replicated.

As a leader in sustainable energy and conservation movements, Brazil offers much insight and research into the major environmental and sustainability concerns facing the world. We work with Columbia’s Earth Institute, School of International & Public Affairs, and Fu Foundation School of Engineering & Applied Science – in addition to several local universities and think-tanks – to examine and understand the political, economic, and technological opportunities and limitations relevant to these concerns.
