Producer, Beyond the Buzzwords

A bit about Beyond the Buzzwords

Beyond the Buzzwords is a CBEY and Tsai CITY initiative where Yale experts break down the buzzwords often used in sustainable innovation. Popularly used concepts are defined in detail as well as their potential as a catalyst for innovation. Beyond the Buzzwords lives on the internet as a multimedia website with curated resources, combining original written and video content with what’s already on the web. The goal is to educate and inform folks inside and outside of Yale so that they can develop and communicate their own solutions, or engage with solutions in the wild. 

Possible topics include circular economy, impact investing, net zero, regenerative agriculture, social enterprise, and carbon removal.
