Facing Environmental Challenges: Sustainability Or Resilience?

Apr 6, 2018

Sustainability has a become a buzzword when it comes to facing environmental challenges. But one researcher believes resilience is a better answer. 

For Mindy Benson, Dean of the University of Wyoming’s Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources, that means solving issues like pollution control, clean air, and acid rain with a more systematic approach that allows humans and nature to work together. In fact, she co-authored a book titled The End of Sustainability about this new perspective. Dean Benson talks more about how resilience can be applied to environmental challenges today.
