10-part 'Race to Save Planet' environmental series begins Oct. 4
The Environmental Center will host "Race to Save the Planet," a 10-part video series on the environmental revolution, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, beginning Oct. 4, in the south lounge on the second floor of Reynolds Club. Admission is free.
The series, which is based on Worldwatch Institute's "State of the World" reports and first appeared on WTTW/Channel 11, offers practical suggestions on how individuals and institutions can help restore the planet's damaged resources. Experts in environmental studies and related fields will introduce the presentations and discuss the current status of issues addressed in the videos.
The series will begin Oct. 4 with "Now or Never," an exploration of how individuals and groups make a difference, hosted by Eric Mendelsohn, a representative of the Student Environmental Action Coalition. Other presentations scheduled for October include "Waste Not, Want Not" on Oct. 11, hosted by Jamie Cahillane, Recycling Coordinator for UCRecycle, and "More for Less" on Oct. 25, hosted by Craig Schuttenberg, Director of the Office of Energy for Facilities Planning & Management.
