Dialogues and Workshops
Through its Uncommon Dialogues and workshops the Stanford Woods Institute brings together leaders from government, NGOs and business with experts from Stanford and other academic institutions to develop practical solutions to pressing environmental challenges. These dialogues equip leaders to make informed decisions for a sustainable future while creating a two-way flow of information that brings new perspectives and context to Stanford's environmental research.
