University Lecture given by Jeffrey Sachs, Feb 25, 2014 The challenge of sustainable development combining economic progress, social inclusion, and global environmental sustainability is unique to our time. Problems such as climate change and rising social inequality are pressing, complex and novel.
They require new tools of analysis and new methods of solution, from the local to the global scales. Jeff Sachs discusses sustainable development as an emerging scholarly discipline and as an urgent policy imperative, and describes the evolving role of universities and other social institutions in addressing these complex challenges.
