Straub Lecture Series
Sustainable Solutions with Jennifer Allen
Wednesday, February 12, 2014
7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Salem Public Library’s Loucks Auditorium
How can we make our communities more environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable? What are the "co-benefits" of addressing challenges such as climate change and creating more livable communities? These questions are being explored at the neighborhood scale in communities in Oregon and across the U.S. Jennifer Allen will describe the development of district energy systems, green infrastructure, "20 minute neighborhoods," and other innovative efforts, and will explore the linkages between integrated community design, equity, and environmental outcomes.
One of our most popular programs, the Straub Environmental Lecture Series provides an opportunity to hear and connect with some of the nation's most respected experts in the field of science and ecology. The Lecture Series brings leading thinkers to Salem to share their knowledge about current environmental issues. Recommended donation: $5/person.
