Insight Faster (Episode 2)—Emerging Sustainability Leader Award Winner Dr. Lela Mélon

To kick off our World Sustainability Awards afterparty, we’ve been speaking to Emerging Sustainability Leader Dr. Lela Mélon. Executive Director of the Planetary Wellbeing Project at the University Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Dr Mélon has already begun to transform higher education and is setting her sights on business. We’ll talk about the Planetary Wellbeing Project, what it’s doing, why, as well as touching on some of the people and organisations who are leading the way in sustainability research and governance.
