Join Johns Hopkins and environmental leaders Jane Goodall (Jane Goodall Institute), Ryan Gellert (Patagonia), and Lisa Jackson (Apple).

Business of Saving the Planet | Environmental Leadership

Leadership is the art of motivating and shepherding groups of people to act toward achieving a common goal. In a business setting, this can mean directing workers and colleagues with a strategy to meet the company’s needs. Right now, developing environmental leaders within the private and public sectors is a global priority. Without strong leaders, we won’t respond effectively to the challenges of climate change, nor be able to chart a path towards a regenerative society. Through the personal stories of our three guests, our discussion will explore what makes a great leader and serve as a dialogue for people who aspire to be strong, impactful environmental leaders in their families, communities, companies and/or on a bigger scale. Join us for this discussion with Dr. Jane Goodall, Ryan Gellert, and Lisa Jackson.

Introductions by Dr. Jerry Burgess and Q&A led by Dr. Jenn da Rosa from the Johns Hopkins University Environmental Sciences and Policy program. Moderated by alumnus Scott Atkinson (MS ’20).
