The Environmental Science and Policy Program has launched a symposium series to explore the challenges and opportunities we face in enhancing human well-being while protecting the environment. This symposium will bring distinguished thinkers from around the world to explore what we know, what we need to know and what we must do as we move into a century of unprecedented environmental change, technological advancement and scale of human activity. The event will include research focused seminars and discussion but will emphasize events and presentations that will speak to the broader MSU and Michigan community. In addition to live events and webcasts, the symposium will generate educational materials that can be used in classes and non-traditional education in the spring and beyond.
Please see the current schedule at the website below. All forums are from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm.
Anderson House Office Building, 5th Floor Mackinac Room, 124 N. Capitol Ave, Lansing, MI. Downtown Lansing, across from the Capitol Bldg.
The Forums are open to all who want to learn more about current issues being discussed in the policy arena. Each panelist will discuss their perspective before the forum opens to audience discourse. Attendees have an opportunity to contribute to the policy discussion. A light lunch is provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
Michigan State University Extension will provide accurate information on basic planning and zoning techniques, as well as current “best practices.” Classes will address land use, community development and environmental issues facing Michigan communities today. Extension educators will also assist local officials by offering training in planning and project management, funding tools, budgeting and record keeping.
