Sponsored by the Graham Sustainability Institute and the Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise, the monthly Exploring Sustainability on Planet Blue discussions follow a relaxed and interactive format, whereby we interview our featured guest in a conversational style—and also invite participants to ask questions, give input, and otherwise engage in the conversation.
We kicked off this year's Exploring Sustainability on Planet Blue series with President Mary Sue Coleman on October 9, when she reflected on her recent trip to Brazil, her evolving views after 10 years as a university president, and the role that universities can and should play in sustainability.
Thank you to all of you who participated in our conversation with President Coleman earlier this month. We hope to see you again on October 29. Please click here to register by October 19.
Andy Hoffman and Don Scavia
