A new list of 50 young leaders who are doing potentially “game-changing” sustainability work in the U.S. features three graduates of the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies (F&ES).
’06 B.A., ’07 M.E.M., the CEO of Elemental Excelerator, a Hawaii-based organization that helps sustainable startups grow; Shyla Raghav
’09 M.E.M., climate change lead for Conservation International, a Virginia-based environmental nonprofit; and Adrien Salazar
’17 M.E.M., a campaign strategist for climate equity for Demos, a public policy organization in New York City, were honored by the online publication Grist
