The Sustainability Showcase Series

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 the theme of – “Driving it Home” – exploring the origins and meanings of home, identifying local social and environmental issues that hit home for students and other attendees, and empowering attendees to begin addressing those issues to make communities more resilient.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Douglas Goodstein at drg5343@psu.edu
