April 29 Discussion to Focus on Sustainability
Omaha - Students from the spring 2009 Leadership for Sustainability class at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) will challenge an audience to become sustainability leaders – holistically, environmentally, socially and economically – during a forum that's free and open to the public.
The "Sustainability Showdown" runs from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 29, in the College of Public Affairs and Community Service (CPACS) Collaborating Commons, Room 132.
Organized by CPACS, the School of Public Administration and the Honors Program, the event will explore holistic sustainability challenges and what individuals can do to create a sustainable future: on campus, in Omaha, in the country and around the world. A sustainability leader is anyone who is concerned about the future of their campus, community or planet, and who is willing to take action.
For more information, contact Mary Ferdig at firstname.lastname@example.org or (402) 393-5360.
UNO is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The celebration recognizes the partnership among the City of Omaha, its citizens and UNO to build a vibrant and dynamic community. The centennial theme is “UNO: Central To Our City Since 1908.” This theme acknowledges the past contributions of UNO to the community and sets the stage for great things to come.
UNO, inaugurated in 1968, emerged from the Municipal University of Omaha, established in 1931, which grew out of the University of Omaha founded in 1908. For Centennial information, go to http://www.unomaha.edu/100/.
