Why on EARTH you should see Professor Jeff Sachs in Houston on May 27
As a world-renowned economist and advocate of sustainable development, Sachs has a very important message for Houston's energy industry. We hope all our alumni enjoy the event, but even more importantly, we hope they spread the world that the director of the Earth Institute, which unites scientists to attack climate change and environmental degradation, will be speaking publicly in Houston for the first time.
Jeffrey Sachs holds two full professorships at Columbia University. In the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA), he is the Quetelet Professor of Sustainable Development, and in the Mailman School of Public Health, he is Professor of Health Policy and Management. Since 2002, he has been Director of the Earth Institute. In that capacity, he leads a university-wide organization of more than 850 professionals from natural-science and social-science disciplines, in support of sustainable development.
