In June 2015, the Nature Conservancy and the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, in cooperation with their Natural Capital Project partners, the World Wildlife Fund and the University of Minnesota's Institute on the Environment, hosted a public event on Integrating Natural Capital into Decisions. The event featured leading academics and practitioners in the field of ecosystem services as well as experts from the public and non-profit sectors, addressing core sustainability challenges of the 21st century.
Next Generation Environmental Solutions | 10th Anniversary Symposium
November 11, 2014
Ten years ago, few researchers and experts crossed disciplines to collaborate in pursuit of environmental solutions. Today, thanks in part to the pioneering work of the Stanford Woods Institute, the landscape has changed dramatically. To mark that progress and lay the groundwork for future collaborative breakthroughs, Woods hosted a tenth anniversary symposium on Nov. 11, 2014. The event, moderated by School of Earth Sciences Dean Pamela Matson and San Jose Mercury News reporter Paul Rogers, brought together Stanford researchers, students and their colleagues in the water, conservation, sustainable development and public health fields.
