Open Forum on Sustainability Set for Wendesday

Students and faculty are invited to participate in a sustainability forum Wednesday.

[Editor’s Note: The event below was originally scheduled for Wednesday, March 2 from 3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. It has been postponed to March 16 at the same time and same location.]

After the water pollution crisis in Flint, Mi. gained national attention, people across the country teamed together to assist those in need. Students here at Penn State donated gallons of water to those in Flint while others donated money and time.

To continue to raise awareness on the issues of sustainability, a forum discussion  put together by the Urban Studies Project, the African American Studies Department faculty, the Student Sustainability Advisory Council (SSAC) will take place March 16.

Topics will include health and water pollution in Flint, the Urban decaying of U.S. cities and what Penn State students can do to ensure a sustainable Penn State community.

The forum will take place on Wednesday, March 16 from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in 167 Willard. Light Refreshments will be provided and the event is open to the public.
