Environmental Affairs Symposium
Date: October 14, 2008
As colleges, corporations, and cities across the country scramble to embrace sustainability, it is worth asking what exactly we hope to achieve. The 11th annual Symposium on Environmental Affairs draws together students, practitioners, and community members to discuss sustainability in time and space. Does sustainability mean eternal equilibrium, or is there a role for destruction and restoration? Are local systems always more sustainable? What exactly would global sustainability look like in today’s complex world?
The symposium includes three days of panel discussions and keynote addresses, which will take place at various campus locations October 14-16. For a full schedule, visit the Environmental Studies website.
