Weston Roundtable Series
Beyond these research-driven outreach activities, SAGE designed and manages the the Weston Roundtable Series
, a high-profile series of talks geared toward public engagement with sustainability issues. Funded by a generous donation from UW-Madison alumnus Roy F. Weston, and in cooperation with the broader Nelson Institute and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, a handful of international leaders on environmental science, engineering, business, and policy are invited to campus each year, with each visit promoted as a major event. To facilitate public attendance and engagement, lectures are held in the late afternoon, followed by a reception to promote informal networking and discussion.
