Stanford University recently created the Doerr School of Sustainability, which is devoted to advancing knowledge critical to sustaining life on Earth, preparing students to lead, and catalyzing informed action to generate local, national, and global solutions.

The Doerr School recently formed a Department of Environmental Social Sciences, which currently includes faculty with expertise in psychology, sociology, communication, political science, economics, history, anthropology, education, business, the law, classics, health and medicine, archeology, and more. New faculty will be hired during the years to come.

With joint sponsorship from the Doerr School, the Stanford Graduate School of Business, the Departments of Communication, Sociology, Anthropology, and Psychology and the Woods Institute for the Environment, Stanford is pleased to be hosting a conference to bring together scholars from across campus and elsewhere who have done work illuminating human thinking and action related to the environment and sustainability.

The conference will be a mix of presentations of completed research, in-process research, and plans for research, as well as discussions of the presentations.
