Managing the Planet panel

Managing the Planet Panel Series

Each year, the School of Global Environmental Sustainability (SoGES) hosts six panels as part of the SoGES Managing the Planet panel series. Panels address diverse topics related to relevant sustainability issues and feature an interdisciplinary panel of Colorado State University experts conducting research related to the topic. Panels are organized to highlight current research and designed to engage the audience and dedicate the majority of time to questions and discussions. SoGES Managing the Planet panels are held at the Avogadro’s Number restaurant and bar, 605 S. Mason Street, are free of charge, and open to the public.

All panels are moderated by Gene Kelly, Professor of Pedology, Deputy Director of the CSU Agricultural Experiment Station, Associate Dean for Extension in the College of Agricultural Science, and former head of CSU’s Department of Soil and Crop Sciences.

Sustainability Happy Hour

The Sustainability Happy Hour began as an experiment to build community online when the COVID-19 pandemic shut down in-person events and networking. Each episode streamed live to the SoGES social media channels and featured conversational interviews with special guests about their area of sustainability expertise as well as commentary on sustainability news and questions from the audience.
