"The Sustainable Self – A Personal Journey Towards Sustainability"
Victor Branagan, SustainEd

Hosted by UW Law Graduate Program in Sustainable International Development and Environmental Law Initiatives

Sustainability is a positive and motivating and many would argue essential goal. However, being sustainable often requires a shift in personal philosophy and in daily practices in order to connect with our authentic selves to help guide our decision making. This talk will outline one person’s journey towards and with sustainability.

Victor Branagan (M.Sc. M.B.S.) is the Principal of SustainEd. For the past twenty years he has worked as a business consultant and a university lecturer on sustainable business focussing on emerging green economy businesses and social/community enterprises.

br/> The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) is a United Nations court of law dealing with war crimes that took place during the conflicts in the Balkans in the 1990’s. Since its establishment in 1993 it has irreversibly changed the landscape of international humanitarian law in its precedent-setting decisions on genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Judge Kwon has been working as one of the permanent judges of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia since being elected by the UN General Assembly in November 2001. He previously served in the judiciary of the Republic of Korea for 22 years. Judge Kwon currently presides over the trial of former Bosnian Serb leader, Radovan Karadžić, and previously sat on the trial of Slobodan Milošević, former President of the Republic of Serbia and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and on the trial of Popović and others.
