Sustainability and Global Affairs

Intro

We’re connecting the global to the local.

CEE works to enhance sustainability commitments at Union Theological Seminary, and to connect with the international movement for a new development agenda and a just transition. We support a new development agenda, in particular the Sustainable Development Goals, which recognizes that an ecological society will require local, national, and international action to challenge economic paradigms that emphasize short-term profit over long-term health and communities.
