Maxwell Boykoff Selected as 2013 Leopold Leadership Fellow
February 06, 2013
Maxwell Boykoff, assistant professor in the Environmental Studies Program at the University of Colorado, is among the 20 mid-career academic environmental scientists named as Leopold Leadership fellows this year.
He was selected on the basis of his research on cultural politics of climate change and analyses of the transformations of carbon‐based economies and societies.
The group was chosen through a highly competitive process on the basis of their exceptional scientific qualifications, demonstrated leadership ability, and strong interest in sharing their knowledge beyond traditional academic audiences. The fellows will take part in intensive leadership and communications training designed to hone their skills in engaging with decision-makers, media, and the public. They also become part of a network of past fellows and program advisors who are working with leaders, both within and outside academe, to solve society’s most pressing environmental and sustainability challenges.
The Leopold Leadership Program is located at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford University.
