Sustainability and Global Affairs

Intro

We’re connecting the global to the local.

CEE recognizes that an ecological society will require local, national, and international action to challenge economic paradigms that emphasize short-term profit over planetary health and thriving communities. We hold observer status at the United Nations through the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and belong to movements such as the Big Shift Coalition which seeks the systemic change necessary to avert further ecological collapse. CEE is also an affiliate center at the Earth Institute of Columbia University.
