Join the UofL Sustainability Council for our Spring Sustainability Roundtable series on alternate Tuesdays from 4:00-4:50pm (1/16, 1/30, 2/13, 2/27, 3/19, 4/2, 4/16).

We kickoff our spring series on January 16th with Brent Fryrear, Director of Louisville's Partnership for a Green City and Chair of the UofL Sustainability Council. Few have a longer relationship with, or more intimate knowledge of, institutional sustainability in Louisville.

Through the Partnership, Brent facilitates sustainability collaboration among the four largest public institutions in town, Metro Government, UofL, Jefferson County Public Schools, and Jefferson Community & Technical College.

Brent has also served on UofL's Sustainability Council since it launched in 2008, and in July 2023, he stepped up to Chair the Council.

Join us for a highly informative conversation about what big institutions are doing to advance environmental, social, and economic responsibility and where they need help.

The format is a 30-40 minute presentation from a variety of speakers throughout the year, followed by 15-20 minutes of open discussion. Anyone with an interest in sustainability can give talks at the speaker series and participate in the audience, including faculty, staff, students, practitioners, teachers, government officials, and members of the public. If you would like to give a presentation, or would like to hear a particular speaker, please contact Tamara Sluss.
