  • Regents’ Professor Zachary Smith recently presented a paper entitled “Rethinking Sustainability: Origins and Misuse” at the International Conference on Sustainability in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. “Often times, sustainability as a word is associated with activities that do not have positive environmental outcomes. My paper highlights some of these problems and then examines how different disciplines interpret sustainability and categorize their activities as being sustainable or non sustainable,” Smith said.
