Green Plus Fellows: Great Hearts & Minds Powering the Institute for Sustainable Development

As we begin the summer of 2013, it amazes me that ISD has had nearly 50 Green Plus Fellows as well as a substantial number of graduate & undergraduate interns in my time alone — and I’ve only been around for half of the Institute’s 10 year lifespan. Even before our earliest institutional partners got involved in a formal discussion about sustainability in 2003, students from Duke University and UNC Chapel Hill were driving the conversation about their role in sustainable economic development together.
