Anthony Clark Awarded Schmidt-MacArthur Fellowship

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, in partnership with the Schmidt Family Foundation, has announced that Anthony Clark ’14 FES/SOM is among the students and academic mentors that will take part in the first Schmidt-MacArthur Fellowships for innovation in the circular economy. Clark's mentor for the Fellowship will be Reid Lifset, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Industrial Ecology, and Resident Fellow in industrial ecology at the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.
The eleven students have been chosen from top universities across four continents including the UK, France, The Netherlands, Italy, USA, India & Africa and represent some of the world’s most renowned universities in the disciplines of Design, Engineering and Business. Each student will receive a fellowship to help them undertake their own Circular Economy Innovation Project with access to an exclusive online learning platform, mentoring support from their university and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, and a place on an intensive week-long summer school in London 17-21 June 2013. In return, the fellowship recipients will share their learning experiences and developing projects on the Ellen MacArthur foundation website.
Going through the … applications we received … was like opening the window on a world of creativity, bold ideas and ambition.
— Dame Ellen MacArthur

Anthony Clark

Student – I am undertaking a joint-degree at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and the Yale School of Management where my work integrates life-cycle environmental analysis, behavioral economics and design thinking to address energy and resource efficiency challenges. I am an accomplished photographer with current interests in solar-powered flight, collaborative consumption, cryptography, and soundscape ecology. I am excited to hash out ideas and share inspiration with the diverse community brought together through the Schmidt-MacArthur Fellowship.

Reid Lifset

Mentor – I am a member of the faculty of the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies at Yale University. I’m a Resident Fellow in industrial ecology and Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Industrial Ecology, an international peer-reviewed bi-monthly, headquartered at and owned by Yale University and published by Wiley-Blackwell. In addition I serve as the associate director of the Industrial Environmental Management Program. My research focuses on the application of industrial ecology to novel problems and research areas and the evolution of extended producer responsibility (EPR).

They each bring a unique perspective and set of experiences to the program as well as a drive to re-think how we approach many important systems in our economy.
