November 1 discussion: how can we advance Michigan Tech as a Living Laboratory on Sustainability and Resilience?

Repost from Tech Today

The Sustainable and Resilient Communities Social Network and Research Collaborative (SRC-Squared) invites you to join the next SRC-Squared event, on Nov. 1 at 11 a.m. Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome!

During this one-hour hybrid session (join in person or via Zoom), participants will have an opportunity to contribute ideas to a brainstorming session in response to the question: What would Michigan Tech look like as a living laboratory of sustainability and resilience?

This conversation is inspired by the current master planning process taking place on campus. Chelsea Schelly, lead of the Tech Forward Initiative on Sustainability and Resilience, and Alan Turnquist, director of sustainability and resilience, will facilitate the discussion. Turnquist is participating in the master planning process, and ideas generated during this session will be integrated into conversations about the planning process and outcomes.

Michigan Tech has enormous potential to transform itself by integrating sustainability and resilience into every facet of the University. Developing a vision for Michigan Tech as a living laboratory of sustainability and resilience can allow students, staff and faculty to contribute mightily to a sustainable and resilient campus, local community, Great Lakes region and world. What would Michigan Tech look like as a living laboratory? How would we use space, resources and time differently? What could such a living laboratory do, and how can you contribute? Come join the discussion!

We look forward to seeing you on Nov. 1 at 11 a.m. Join us in the Dow Environmental Sciences and Engineering Building (Dow), Room 875, or join via Zoom.
