To kick-off the series on Aug. 28th, our speaker will be Justin Mog, PhD, who has served as the University of Louisville's chief sustainability officer, as the Assistant to the Provost for Sustainability Initiatives, since 2009.
Dr. Mog will be providing an update on UofL's sustainability initiatives and sharing his transformative vision of creating a campus where our sustainability challenges become learning and research opportunities for students, faculty, and staff working in collaboration to reshape campus, cultures, behaviors, minds, and knowledge toward meeting peoples' needs now and in the future in a way that is just and equitable while maintaining ecological integrity in perpetuity. This is what sustainability truly demands of higher education. How can you contribute toward that vision?
The format is a 30-40 minute presentation from a variety of speakers throughout the year, followed by 20-30 minute 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.
