How would you redesign the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to address today’s complex sustainability challenges? Our framework for understanding environmental problems has evolved from a narrow focus on end-of-pipe pollution to a broader perspective of sustainability in complex adaptive systems. Yet the institutions we have to address these problems have not evolved as rapidly.

In this event, join ASU students and several former founders and leaders of the US EPA for a presentation and discussion about reforming the EPA for the 21st century.
