“Sustainability is a way of understanding the world, recognizing the role each one of us plays in it as a part of an interconnected and complex web of societies, economies, and ecosystems,” says Sofía Del Valle, a 2019 master of global affairs graduate of the Keough School of Global Affairs.
“I like working on sustainability because it keeps me grounded and connected to these truths in my personal life; and also because it enables me to support, as well as hold accountable, some of the most influential actors that can change that web for better or for worse.”
Sofía is one of five women across Notre Dame’s global network who we are being recognized for making a positive change in the field of sustainability.
Also featured is Sisi Meng, assistant teaching professor of economics and technology for development, who teaches sustainability, raising climate change awareness among students and providing them with different views and skills in the hope that they will eventually increase the demand for action from our policymakers and become part of the change.
