Reshaping Our World

“I’m really lucky to be doing every day exactly what I learned [in the Faculty of Environmental Studies], and that’s using an interdisciplinary approach to solving environmental problems that touch on health, economy, public policy, and the environment.”

— Bruce Lourie (MES ’87), Author, Death by Rubber Duck
President of the Ivey Foundation
