Network for Emerging Leaders in Sustainability (NELS)
Recent NELS Event
On December 1, 2015, NELS, in collaboration with the Women's Aquatic Network (WAN), hosted Ways Forward in Urban Sustainability - a Vancouver Vignette, an event featuring former Sustainability Director for the City of Vancouver, Amanda Pitre-Hayes. Amanda highlighted the various pathways and challenges associated with sustainability and climate change in the urban context using examples from Vancouver, Canada, as well as those from other North American cities through her involvement with the Urban Sustainability Directors Network (USDN).
The Network for Emerging Leaders in Sustainability (NELS) is a seminar series for early-career professionals (and professionals who are new to the topic of sustainability) who are interested in building bridges with peers in DC-area agencies and organizations. The Network includes leaders with diverse backgrounds and expertise, from natural resource management to energy policy to public health. NELS members share a common interest in taking a multidisciplinary approach to sustainability challenges -considering the economic, environmental, social, and cultural dimensions of these problems. Through NELS, these emerging leaders will foster relationships that enable them to more effectively bring about a sustainable future.
