How does Northeastern take sustainable practices to the next level?
A new course kicking off this fall will examine the university’s efforts to conserve energy, reduce food waste, and participate in other environmental initiatives that impact both the Boston campus and the residential neighborhoods surrounding it.
“Universities are anchors in their communities,” says Stephen Flynn, a professor of political science and a leading expert on critical infrastructure and supply chain resilience. “Providing leadership—not just thought leadership and leadership through research and teaching, but really through the engagement of the community—is essential to getting us to a better place.” Flynn, founding director of Northeastern’s Global Resilience Institute, is one of the guest speakers for the seven-week course titled Sustainability & Resilience at Northeastern, which will meet Tuesday evenings in-person and online starting on Sept. 14. Registration is still open.
