Managing the Planet - Women: Key to Sustainability

Date: 
Wednesday, March 7, 2018 - 5:00pm to 6:30pm
Location: 

Avogadro’s Number (605 S Mason Street Fort Collins, Colorado 80524)

The School of Global Environmental Sustainability (SoGES) brings to CSU and the community a panel discussion on the powerful contribution women are making towards sustainable development. Pressing challenges facing humanity today and issues from poverty to climate change can be mitigated through the empowerment and education of women. There is a growing awareness that women are a force in local to global decisions; they provide knowledge that draws attention to healthcare, education, and discriminatory policies whose balance serve as prerequisites for sustainable development. The panel of scientists will provide insight on how women are forging the path toward environmental stewardship, social justice and equal economic opportunity.

Join us at Avogadro’s Number (605 S Mason Street Fort Collins, Colorado 80524) from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 7, 2018.

Panelists:

• Meena Balgopal, Department of Biology
• Alexandra Bernasek, Department of Economics
• Emily Fischer, Department of Atmospheric Science
• Jennifer Solomon, Department of Human Dimensions of Natural Resources

The discussion will be moderated by Gene Kelly, Associate Director for Research and Development at SoGES, Deputy Director of the Agricultural Experiment Station and Associate Dean of Extension. 


The panel discussion, part of a Managing the Planet series, is free of charge and open to the public. Visit, sustainability.colostate.edu for more information about SoGES.
