Join the UofL Sustainability Council on August 31st as we kick-off our Fall Sustainability Roundtable series on alternate Tuesdays from 4:00-4:50pm.
Our first speaker will highlight the work of the Louisville Climate Action Network (LCAN). This non-profit envisions a net-zero Louisville in which our needs are met by energy efficiency and renewable energy. LCAN offers customized programs showing ways to reduce Louisville's carbon footprint, and advocates for smarter public policies to reduce carbon pollution and cut costs.
LCAN has three main functions: 1. Action inspiring education through our web site, e-newsletter, videos, book club and classes—from free, customized programs to dependable B4UBuy Workshops; 2. Strategic advocacy for smarter public policies to reduce carbon pollution and cut costs, because changing light bulbs alone won’t suffice, plus civic education; and 3. Experienced based, energy efficiency services to other area non-profit organizations.
We'll gather online: or dial-in at 502-792-9582 (Conference ID: 930 044 957#). No pre-registration is required.
The format is a 30-40 minute presentation from a variety of speakers throughout the year, followed by 20-30 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.
