Each year the Center for Sustainable Systems based at the School for Environment and Sustainability, invites an internationally recognized expert to deliver the Peter M. Wege Lecture on Sustainability at the University of Michigan. This annual Lecture Series focuses on critical issues of sustainability and honors Peter M. Wege for his many outstanding contributions to the University of Michigan’s Center for Sustainable Systems and to the environmental field. This Lecture Series addresses important sustainability challenges facing society in the 21st century including: energy security and declining fossil resources, global climate change, freshwater scarcity, ecosystem degradation and biodiversity loss; and sustainable development strategies for mobility, buildings, and other complex systems for meeting human needs in both developed and developing countries.
