Meet the Future
Climate change. Food access. Water quality. The world needs bold leaders willing to take on urgent environmental issues more than ever. At SEAS, we're focusing on the future - transforming research into action to create a healthier planet for all.
After COP26, the real race to save the planet is on
With Glasgow in the rearview mirror, it’s time to realize where the real action is—in countries and states, in counties and cities. We must divorce ourselves and our economies from fossil fuels as quickly as possible, and for reasons that go beyond the climate chaos and deadly air pollution that fossil fuels cause.
Game changers in action
Kat Superfisky (BA ’07, MS/MLA ’13) - Urban Ecological Design Game Changer
“To me, Los Angeles and its river provide the perfect laboratory for exploring how to rebuild cities—humans’ new natural environment—into more inhabitable places.”
Jiayi (Angela) Wan (MUP/MPH ’15) - Health Impact Game Changer
“The health impacts of climate change have been an understated part of the climate change discussion.’”
José González (MS ’09) - Community Game Changer
One of the core values of this school is the interdisciplinary nature of the curriculum—which helped me to see that environmental conservation work isn't just about the natural sciences. It isn't just about the ecology. It's fundamental to understand what we're conserving, and why we're conserving it, and that the whole of the biosphere is important for us.

"To be a black person is to come from a long bloodline of survivors and storytellers, with a resilience that people can't even comprehend." - Lena Waithe
In SEAS's commitment towards decolonizing and creating a more equitable world, we want to acknowledge and rectify the erasure and minimization of black and indigenous environmentalists in conservation. We commit to promoting prominent black environmental historians and authors through our coursework and programming.
