The Roundtable on Science and Technology for Sustainability held a meeting May 16-17, 2006 in Washington, DC to introduce new members and to develop a plan for the upcoming year. In early 2006, the Roundtable expanded and broadened its membership in order to include a balance of members from government, academia, nonprofit organizations, and the private sector. After sharing brief perspectives from the various sectors represented, Roundtable members discussed a vision and renewed set of goals and principles for the Roundtable.
Various topics were presented as potential areas for future Roundtable activity. Presentations on these topics are available by selecting the links on the right of this page. Some topics, including "Linking Knowledge with Action" and "Metrics for Sustainability" will be addressed more in depth during the Roundtable's summer 2006 workshop in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
