Imagining a Resilient Future: Engaging the LMU Community
2017-2018 Environmental Lecture Series
Presented by the LMU Center for Urban Resilience in partnership with LMU Environmental Studies and Environmental Science programs.
We are living in an unprecedented time of social and environmental change. In order to work towards a resilient future, it is important to understand the complexity of global and local environmental issues and use that information as a foundation to build solutions. This lecture series aims to engage the LMU community in the range of environmental research studies and projects being conducted on and off campus. LMU faculty, staff, and affiliates will discuss their work and highlight collaborative partnerships with other universities, environmental organizations, and public agencies. Students will learn about ongoing projects that may provide potential internship and research opportunities.
Lectures will take place in Ahmanson Auditorium, UNH 1000 from 4:30-6:30 as follows:
