Sustainability Showcase — Ken Ilgunas, “One Man’s Epic Hike Along the Keystone XL Pipeline”
September 10, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT
Join us for our second showcase of the 2021-22 year, which this time will be a virtual showcase. Author and journalist Ken Ilgunas will be speaking on Trespassing across America: One Man’s Epic, Never-Done-Before (and sort of Illegal) Hike along the Keystone XL Pipeline.
The Sustainability Showcases make connections between faculty research, personal and professional interest and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals while broadening the discourse surrounding sustainability. Speakers are invited to give a 45-minute talk, answer questions and hang around to mingle with attendees.
Facing COVID-19 and climate change, and having national conversations about racism and anti-Blackness in America, has made it clear — as last year’s Showcase theme suggested, the time to act for a more sustainable world is now. The Penn State community can and should be at the forefront of this change.
This is why our theme this year is theme of – Driving it Home – exploring the origins and meanings of home, identify local social and environmental issues that hit home for students and other attendees, and empower attendees to begin addressing those issues to make communities more resilient.
