Professor Geoff Dabelko recently was awarded the prestigious Al-Moumin Award for Environmental Peacebuilding. Throughout his groundbreaking career, Geoff has been showing security and environmental groups how their objectives are often the same. On this episode, he explains how tensions over shared or limited resources can be an opportunity for promoting peace and collaboration, rather than simply a trigger for more conflict.
Geoff’s career has taken him around the world and into power centers in Washington. As he talks about some of the themes and high points in his work life, he will offer suggestions for building a career devoted to supporting the environment.
