CBEY 2050 Fellows

Imagine a responsible economy. What will resilient societies look like in 2050, and how will business help make that possible?

CBEY 2050 Fellows

The CBEY 2050 Fellows is an interdisciplinary group of Yale graduate and professional students who come together monthly to imagine a responsible economy, resilient societies, and how business can help make them possible.

Convened virtually by Patagonia Director of Philosophy (and CBEY Executive Fellow) Vincent Stanley, the group’s meetings are peer-led, open-ended conversations around the future of business and the environment. Throughout the year, the 2050 Fellows will discuss the components of a responsible economy, covering topics like democratic engagement, community resilience, regenerative agriculture, the urban/rural divide, the role of technology, and corporate social responsibility in an era marked by climate crisis, a renewed focus on systemic racism, increased division between the wealthy and the poor, political polarization, strained planetary boundaries, and other major challenges.

If you are prepared to engage in peer discussions about these topics and how business can be utilized as a part of the solution, we encourage you to apply. 

Questions?  Contact Allegra Lovejoy Wiprud  (YSE/YDS ’22) and Chris Perkins (YSE/SOM ’21)
