Telecast To Focus On Sustainability

A national telecast on "Sustainability: Taking the Long View" will be held at the Storrs campus on Thursday, October 9, from noon to 2 p.m., in the Mansfield Room at the Nathan Hale Inn.

The telecast, an interactive event for students, faculty, administrators, and local residents, will discuss the topic of sustainability, exploring why it is important for a secure and civil society; the role of higher education in creating a sustainable world; and strategies for making sustainability a foundation of learning and practice in higher education.

There will be a live question-and-answer session.

Lunch will be provided at no charge, and free copies of two National Wildlife Federation campus environmental sustainability books will be offered to attendees.

UConn is one of just two host sites for the telecast in Connecticut.
