MICK SMYER is a professor of psychology and the former provost at Bucknell University. He also is a senior fellow in social innovation at Babson College. A national expert on aging, Smyer has written and lectured extensively. In addition to holding leadership roles in national organizations on aging, he also has consulted with Fortune 500 companies, state and national legislative leaders, and higher education organizations on the impacts of aging. Smyer is the founder of Graying Green: Climate Action for an Aging World. Graying Green links two global patterns — population aging and climate change. It works with older adults, climate communicators, climate scientists, and community and business leaders who view older people not solely as victims of climate change, but also as potential leaders of climate action. With support from Stanford’s Hasso Plattner Institute of Design, Graying Green taps expertise in gerontology, climate communication and human-centered design to move older people from anxiety to action to habit on climate change.
