Kevin Palmer leads sustainability workshops for government and military organizations world wide and is a frequent speaker/trainer at symposia and conferences. He earned his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from the University of Oklahoma and a Master’s in Metallic Chemistry from Yale University. After a successful career at Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), Kevin founded the Center for Sustainable Solutions (CS2) where he continues to work with government (primarily military) and civilian organizations to help them develop more sustainable strategies for achieving their organizations’ missions. Kevin is a dynamic individual who understands the challenges we face as a nation and globally and is committed to making a difference so that the world he leaves for his children will be better than the world we have created by our relatively unsustainable behaviors. Professor Smith says, “I believe you will find his presentation to be compelling and deserving of your attention. We really do need some ‘systems thinkers’ to help us save the planet!”
