Washington, DC: Johns Hopkins in Action Day of Service

Join SAIS alumni, students, administration, and friends of the community for a Johns Hopkins Day of Service at Woodlawn Cemetery, 4611 Benning Road, SE. From its founding in 1895 until the 1950s, Woodlawn Cemetery was the preeminent burial place for African Americans in the Nation's Capital. It is  the final resting place of Senator Blanche K. Bruce, educator Roscoe Conkling Bruce, famed abolitionist Wilson Bruce Evans, Congressman John Mercer Langston, composer Will Marion Cook, playwright Mary P. Burrill, and journalist John Wesley Cromwell, to name but a few. Following the desegregation of Washington's cemeteries, burials at Woodlawn ceased and it fell into neglect. We will work to restore Woodlawn to a condition worthy of trailblazers remembered there as we clear the brush and vegetation that has overtaken the headstones. Click here to register and order t-shirt size.

Challenges of Democracy in the European Union and its Neighbors

Democracy, which protects freedom and citizen's rights more than any other regime, is in crisis today. In recent years, it has become exhausted in its European center and along its periphery. Citizen trust of the European Union's democratic institutions has been fading. The EU's "normative power" - its ability to spread its norms and values to other states - and its "soft power" - its ability to attract others to its point of view - are now seen as less likely to achieve the expected goals of spreading democracy within EU countries and creating a ring of well-governed states in neighboring countries. Democracy and its institutions need to adapt to these new challenges.

Assessing Corporate Reporting on Energy Efficiency in the Airline, Automobile, Chemical and Steel Sectors

Climate change experts, policy makers and private sector leaders are increasingly aware of the critical role corporations and investors must play to achieve environmental sustainability. While many companies disclose energy consumption and GHG emissions data to the Carbon Disclosure Project, the extent to which publicly listed corporations prioritize and communicate information related to energy productivity through their investor-targeted publications and public websites varies widely. Please join us for a presentation on a qualitative assessment of information on energy efficiency provided to investors and stakeholders by several major corporations in the airline, automobile, chemical, and steel sectors. Energy efficiency experts Karen Hughes and Kate Offringa will comment on lessons learned and prospects for increased corporate transparency and effective communication with investors leading to improved productivity and sustainability.
