UD’s Byrne participates in international forum to ponder planet’s future

John Byrne, Distinguished Professor of Energy and Climate Policy at the University of Delaware, was one of 40 environmental thought leaders from around the world who gathered in Frankfurt, Germany, this summer to discuss the future of global environmentalism.

Titled “Rethinking Environmentalism: Justice, Sustainability and Diversity,” the gathering was hosted by the Ernst Strüngmann Forum, an organization dedicated to promoting interdisciplinary communication and research in the sciences. Through its innovative communication process, the forum provides a creative environment within which top international scientists discuss themes that transcend classic disciplinary boundaries.
