Sustainability Science 2.0 is an initiative bringing together a cross-disciplinary group of leaders from anthropology to zoology, National Academy members and leaders, funders from the public-sector and private foundations, impacts investors, curriculum experts, sustainability practitioners, Fortune 500 CSOs, university presidents, early-career professionals, CEOs of leading companies, chief scientists of NGOs, and others in intensive full-day dialogue events, focused on the future of Sustainability Science in the United States.

The dialogues built on listening and sharing the vast experiences of the participants and their cross-sectoral perspectives.

Small group discussions and break-out sessions facilitated knowledge-exchange during the day long activities.

Deliberating over the most significant issues in sustainability science required concentration.

Networking with old colleagues and new contacts was also part of the experience.
