Conversations with Cabrera: Enric Sala (ONLINE)

Join President Ángel Cabrera in conversation with conservationist Enric Sala, current National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence and author of The Nature of Nature: Why We Need the Wild, which makes a clear case for why protecting nature is our best health insurance, and why it makes economic sense.

The event includes an opportunity for the audience to ask questions.

Unscripted and informal — unearthing leadership’s thinking behind the big ideas taking shape across the Institute and trends likely to define our future — this video series is meant to capture candid conversations between President Ángel Cabrera and thought leaders across Georgia Tech and beyond.

Discussions will revolve around various topics related to academics and research, as well as campus life and culture.

I'm very much looking forward to exploring the multitude of voices and backgrounds that contribute to making Georgia Tech what it is and shaping the world we live in,” said President Cabrera. “Every day I am inspired by the talent I get to work with, and I’m excited to share it with our entire community.”
