Year of Sustainability

Tuesday August 31 2010

 

LC's Year of Sustainability began with a kickoff celebration featuring dinner, live music, speakers, local merchants, organizations, and representatives from places of worship. Next up is a film series beginning Sept. 14 with I Love Trash.

Dr. Kevin Peterson, associate professor of mathematics, is chairing the Year of Sustainability. He has set out a broad definition of sustainability to guide the year's focus:

"To live sustainably means to assume a lifestyle that respects and supports all living things, upholds universal human rights, maintains economic and social justice, insists on a culture of peace, and can be continued indefinitely."
