The Eleventh Annual Symposium on Environmental Affairs: Scales of Sustainability
October 14-16, 2008
Lewis & Clark College

As colleges, corporations, and cities across the country scramble to embrace sustainability, it is worth asking what exactly we hope to achieve. The 11th annual Symposium on Environmental Affairs draws together students, practitioners, and community members to discuss sustainability in time and space. Does sustainability mean eternal equilibrium, or is there a role for destruction and restoration? Are local systems always more sustainable? What exactly would global sustainability look like in today's complex world? For a complete schedule of keynote speakers, panel sessions, and other activities, please visit the Symposium website:


All events are free and open to the public.
