Ohio State — led by President E. Gordon Gee, the group Students for a Sustainable Campus, Sustainability Coordinator Corey Hawkey, our own School of Environment and Natural Resources, and others — is taking steps (literally) toward being a more sustainable campus.
Joseph Fiksel, head of Ohio State’s Center for Resilience, speaks today at 3:30 p.m., part of the School of Environment and Natural Resources’ winter seminar series. (Free; all are welcome.) Details. He’s co-founder of the consulting firm Eco-Nomics LLC, which specializes in sustainable business practices, and is the author of Design for Environment: A Guide to Sustainable Product Development. He writes on defining “the s-word” here. Check out his bio here (pdf).
Cal DeWitt, a leading Christian environmentalist, speaks five times in Wooster and Columbus later this week, sponsored four of those times by parts of our college. He’s a professor with the University of Wisconsin’s Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, the author of Earth-wise: A Biblical Response to Environmental Issues, and as the elected town chair of Dunn, Wisc., helped develop an innovative, award-winning land use plan. None other than Bill McKibben (The End of Nature) has written, “I have a lot of heroes, but Cal DeWitt is high on the list.”
