2020 Global Leadership Challenge: Achieving Environmental Sustainability Across Sectors

Sunday, July 19, 2020 at 8:00am to 12:00am

Virtual Event

A sustainable future depends on our ability to provide creative solutions locally, here in Eugene, Oregon, that transfer globally, across continents. The University of Oregon and the community of for-profit, non-profit, and public sectors throughout the region stand at the intersection of research and environmental science and offer the ideal platform for solving sustainability-related challenges.

The 2020 Global Leadership Challenge, Achieving Environmental Sustainability Across Sectors, will bring together undergraduate students from the UO, the US, and around the world to unite focus on the globally critical and increasingly pressing challenge of sustainability. Participants will complete a two-week intensive program in which they will work with three community partners each from a different local sector to address a sustainability related challenge which pertains to their work. Along the way students will complete interactive workshops, learn how to collaborate cross culturally, develop leadership skills, connect with peers from around the world, and gain valuable professional experience.
