The staff at the Yale Environment Review would like to announce the winner and finalists for the first-ever Editor’s Choice Competition.

The winner of the first-ever YER Editor’s Choice Competition is Christina Stone, with her article Energy innovation and emissions reduction strategies overlook the poor

Here is a preview of her article:

“Curbing greenhouse gas emissions is a very hot topic these days. Between mitigating climate change and eliminating air pollution, environmental policy has the energy sector in its crosshairs. The good news is that innovation in clean energy and renewable sources holds great investment potential. However, innovation is moving at a glacial pace due to a lack of attention from policymakers. Currently, efforts put…

Yale SAF Christmas Tree Harvest (Photo credit Chris Anderson)

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. A time when young foresters, aided by friends, significant others, and curious onlookers, caravan north to Yale-Myers Forest to harvest trees, spruce boughs, mountain laurel, and winterberry. Every year, in early December, we take a break from the final weeks of classes to harvest Christmas trees and wreath-making materials at Yale-Myers and return to Yale with trucks overflowing with holiday cheer.

F&ES Treks to Quito, Ecuador

During the October fall break, a group of roughly 30 students from three Yale graduate schools (FES, School of Management, and Public Health) traveled to Quito, Ecuador. The majority of these students were FES-ers, who 1) attended the UN Habitat III conference as accredited stakeholders and 2) either presented research related to urban resilience or participated in a consultancy project.

The UN Habitat III conference was a unique occurrence. It is an event that only happens every 20 years, where national and subnational governments gather to discuss urban development. In this past Habitat, the New Urban Agenda was adopted. This is a guidance document that will dictate how urbanization will occur worldwide, and encompasses many areas including but not limited to social inclusion, ending poverty, environmentally sustainable…

Blue Ridge Mountains - Fall Forestry Field Trip

This October break, 16 MF and MFS students traveled down to the Southern Appalachians for a fall forestry tour that culminated in a two-day MF Alumni Convocation at Warren Wilson College in Asheville, NC. It was a whirlwind of a tour spanning four days, planned by two MF teaching fellows in collaboration with Mike Ferrucci, our forest operations professor. Before the trip, the group met to discuss what to expect on the tour, and the trip leaders shared reading material to provide context for the operations we would see throughout the four days.

We flew into Atlanta and hit the ground running with a visit to a TIMO-managed pine plantation in northern Georgia. We drove further north that day to Hot Springs, NC where the whole group stayed in a rental…

The Yale Food Systems Symposium

One of the great things about being a student at F&ES is that you have the opportunity to step into different worlds, hear new perspectives, and collaborate with your peers and outside experts almost every day of the week. On Friday September 30th, F&ES hosted the Yale Food Systems Symposium (YFSS) in Kroon Hall. The day-long event was planned by a small group of Yale F&ES, School of Management, and Divinity School students, and included speakers, panelists, and workshop facilitators from across the country. Topics included sustainable food systems and innovations in the fields of agriculture, conservation, climate change, food consumption, and urbanization. The theme for this year’s Symposium? Feeding a growing world.
