Dr. Eban Goodstein, Director of the Bard Center for Environmental Policy at Bard College, New York, will offer a free public lecture at 7:30 p.m. September 9 in John Gano Memorial Chapel on the William Jewell College campus in Liberty, Mo. The lecture is presented by the College’s Center for Justice and Sustainability; tickets or reservations are not required.

The Bard Center for Environmental Policy was founded in 1999 on the premise that scientists, economists, lawyers, ethicists and policy makers must understand one another’s perspectives and values in order to engage critical environmental issues. The graduate program was launched in 2001 with the belief that policy solutions to global issues, such as climate change, and local issues, such as PCB dredging in the Hudson River, need to be approached from an integrated perspective, not solely through the lens of one profession or another, and that this process should be conducted with an eye to the best available scientific knowledge.

Goodstein holds a B.A. in geology from Williams College and a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Michigan. Dr. Goodstein directs two national educational initiatives on global warming: Campus 2 Congress and The National Climate Seminar. In recent years he has coordinated climate education events at more than 2,500 colleges, universities, high schools and other institutions across the country. Dr. Goodstein is the author of a college textbook, Economics and the Environment, now in its sixth edition; Fighting for Love in the Century of Extinction: How Passion and Politics Can Stop Global Warming; and The Trade-Off Myth: Fact and Fiction About Jobs and the Environment.

Articles by Dr. Goodstein have appeared in many publications including The Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, Land Economics, Ecological Economics, and Environmental Management. His research has been featured in The New York Times, Scientific American, Time, Chemical and Engineering News, The Economist, USA Today and The Chronicle of Higher Education. He serves on the editorial board of Sustainability: The Journal of Record and Environment, Workplace and Employment, and is on the Steering Committee of Economics for Equality & the Environment.

Believing that justice and sustainability issues must be addressed by a well-educated and motivated populace, William Jewell College established in 2008 the Center for Justice and Sustainability in order to develop in its students the ability to address significant issues in human communities and in social, economic and ecological systems.

William Jewell College is committed to bringing together talented students and gifted faculty mentors within a vibrant community sparked by a rigorous and intentional liberal arts curriculum. A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college’s location within the Kansas City metroplex of more than two million.
