CBEY 2050 Fellows

Imagine a regenerative and 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 regenerative ecology and economy, resilient societies, and how business and civil society can help make them possible.

Convened by Patagonia Director of Philosophy (and CBEY Resident Fellow) Vincent Stanley, the group’s meetings are peer-led, open-ended conversations around the future of business and the environment.

There is much to discuss in an era marked by the climate crisis, a renewed focus on systemic racism, political polarization, strained planetary boundaries, and other major challenges.

Throughout the year, the 2050 Fellows will explore major issues in our working lives, including environmental sustainability, business ethics, migration, economic divides, the future of agriculture, and the role of the US in a global context.

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!
