Just caught sight of an article in today’s Oregonian describing a symposium at Lewis & Clark College (located in SW Portland). The intro to the symposium reads:

Eleventh Annual Symposium on Environmental Affairs: Scales of Sustainability

October 14-16, 2008
Lewis & Clark College

As colleges, corporations, and cities across the country scramble to embrace sustainability, it is worth asking what exactly we hope to achieve. The 11th annual Symposium on Environmental Affairs draws together students, practitioners, and community members to discuss sustainability in time and space. Does sustainability mean eternal equilibrium, or is there a role for destruction and restoration? Are local systems always more sustainable? What exactly would global sustainability look like in today’s complex world? Download the 2008 Symposium poster here.

I believe it is free and open to the public. Follow the link for more info. And if you plan to go, notify Reed’s green scientists. Share a ride? Share your interest?

    Thanks for the plug–indeed, all Symposium events are free and open to everyone. All are encouraged to attend! (For those looking to get to the campus via public transportation, the College operates an hourly shuttle that stops at the Sellwood New Seasons.)
