Creating a Sustainable Future: Education, Actions and Resources for All
Sustainable development is a pattern of resource use that meets human needs while preserving the environment. Dr. Debra Rowe is president of the U.S. Partnership for Education for Sustainable Development, an organization that brings together communities and members of the business, education, government and faith sectors to initiate sustainability projects. She helps higher education associations and institutions integrate sustainability into mission, curricula, professional development, research, student life, purchasing and investments, facilities and operations, and community partnerships. A professor of energy management, renewable energy technology and psychology for 30 years, Rowe has created online sustainability related courses and degrees with funds from the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation.
Rowe also will be featured at a free brown-bag discussion at noon Monday, September 26, in the Presidents Room of Davies Center.
