Gus Speth: The Unlikely Making of an Environmental Leader The Vermont Humanities Council presents Gus Speth, cofounder of the Natural Resources Defense Council and World Resources Institute, discussing The Unlikely Making of an Environmental Leader. The Norwich Bookstore will have Speth's latest book, Angels by the River: A Memoir, available for purchase and signing. Speth will reflect on his southern roots and very American story, consider the need for a new environmentalism, and how one can make a difference in an increasingly complex world. Speth is the former dean of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and founder and president of the World Resources Institute. He has also been administrator of the United Nations Development Programme, chair of the U.N. Development Group, professor of law at Georgetown University, and chair of the U.S. Council on Environmental Quality in the Carter administration. He currently teaches at Vermont Law Schoo. His previous books include award-winning The Bridge at the Edge of the World: Capitalism, the Environment, and Crossing from Crisis to Sustainability, among others. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit the Vermont Humanities Council.
