Lloyd K. Garrison Lecture on Environmental Law -- Pace Law School

Daniel A. Farber
Sho Sato Professor of Law
University of California, Berkeley

Sustainable Consumption and Communities: Brining the American Way of Life into the Twenty-First Century.

It’s easy to figure out what environmentalists are against. That’s obvious to anyone who reads the newspaper. But what are environmentalists for? What way of life does environmentalism envision for Americans?

True sustainability will require not only change in how businesses operate, but also change in how people live their lives. At the level of individual decision-making, people need access to information and guidance to assist with sustainable consumption decisions. To have a fuller opportunity to lead sustainable and satisfying lives, people also will need infrastructure and a built environment that support sustainability.

This lecture presents a vision for putting people front-and-center in sustainability — a vision that focuses on how people live their daily lives in their communities. The lecture will then explore legal strategies for implementing the vision. Some of these strategies merely involve incremental improvements or expansions in existing programs; others require more innovative approaches.
