The second Yale Environmental Sustainability Summit (YESS) was held at Yale on November 3-4, 2017.
YESS 2017 Vision
Environmental sustainability. Social justice. Economic development. Global equality. These priorities shape our present and the way we respond to them will define our shared future. The 2nd Yale Environmental Sustainability Summit (YESS) will bring together change makers from diverse spheres to share effective models of sustainability and build skills for action. YESS aspires to catalyze the Yale alumni community to take a fresh look at global “unsustainability” and cultivate solutions that connect people and priorities. The 2017 Summit will offer attendees the opportunity to strengthen social and professional networks, gain new knowledge, and expand their toolkits.
The first Yale Environmental Sustainability Summit (YESS) was held at Yale on November 6-7, 2015.
YESS was an entirely alumni-organized event attended by over 300 alums and 75 students that tackled a range of issues at the intersection of food, water, and energy.
