Ellis Rubinstein, President and Chief Executive Officer, The New York Academy of Sciences

In 2015, the United Nations established the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a “plan of action for people, planet, and prosperity.” Included in this agenda is the commitment to protecting the planet from degradation. But how will this be achieved? Ellis Rubinstein will address the role of science and technology in accomplishing this goal to ensure a sustainable planet for present and future generations.
