Network for Emerging Leaders in Sustainability (NELS)
On April 8, 2015, NELS hosted a launch event of a new report from the National Research Council, The Critical Role of Animal Science Research in Food Security and Sustainability. Dr. Bernard Goldstein, University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health and Chair of the report’s authoring committee and a committee member Dr. Louis D’Abramo, Mississippi State University presented the report findings and recommendations. Dr. Ann Bartuska, U.S. Department of Agriculture, also provided USDA’s perspective on the report as one of key sponsors for the study.
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.
