Sustainability: A New American Grand Strategy
February 21, 2018 @ 4:00 pm
Join us as we host Colonel Mark \'Puck\' Mykleby\, USMC (Ret) for the inaugural Sustainability Speaker Series event. Mykleby will tell the story of a grand strategy\, born within the Pentagon\, to recapture America’s greatness at home and abroad by elevating sustainability as a strategic imperative. It aligns America’s enduring national interests of prosperity and security with a new framework that blurs the lines between domestic and foreign policy by addressing pressing economic\, security\, political\, social and environmental issues at home\, and looking at how those issues impact and connect with the global community.
