Sustainability authors to speak on Feb. 17

Thanks to YEEC member Dorothy Healy for pointing out this free event in Portsmouth:

John Aber and Tom Kelly talk about THE SUSTAINABLE LEARNING COMMUNITY: ONE UNIVERSITY’S JOURNEY TO THE FUTURE
At 7:00 PM on Wednesday February 17, 2010 at the River Run Bookstore on Congress Street, downtown Portsmouth.

Details about the book:

University communities have the potential to serve as models in the development and application of sustainability principles and practices, not only by what they teach and study, but also by how they operate facilities and engage with off-campus partners. With the oldest endowed campus-wide sustainability program in the country, established in 1997, the University of New Hampshire has become a leader in advancing a campus culture of sustainability. The UNH experience provides a unique window into the development of a new and integrated approach to teaching, learning, research, and operations. It is also a valuable guide for other institutions that aim to enhance the quality of campus life while reducing their environmental footprint. The book’s organization along four functional domains (curriculum, operations, research, and engagement) allows faculty, staff, students, and managers to focus on sections of particular relevance to their university roles. Each chapter develops standards of best practices and presents interesting case studies to humanize the larger effort.

ABOUT THE EDITORS
JOHN ABER is Professor of Environmental Science and former Vice President for Research, University of New Hampshire. TOM KELLY is Chief Sustainability Officer and Director, Office of Sustainability Programs.
