In 2010, SMEP hosted an Academy entitled "Taking Sustainability Seriously: The Role of Knowledge Institutions." We brought together scholars from MSU and other institutions to discuss how universities and other knowledge institutions can play a useful role in sustainability. Below are videos of some of the presentations from that Academy, including a whole day's presentations.
