Earth Institute Events: Dickson Despommier Again; John Perkins; State of the Planet Conference ’06

Posted in cu official shenanigans at 8:38 am by cuenv-main

Dickson Despommier is speaking again tomorrow, Monday 2/27, at 4:30 PM in the Hogan Hall Conference Room. The talk is entitled “Agriculture for the 21st Century and Beyond: Things are Looking Up!” If you haven’t seen Professor Despommier speak before–go! He’s an incredibly charismatic speaker with inspiring and innovative ideas.

On Tuesday 2/28 at 6:00 PM in 1501 IAB (the School of International and Public Affairs Building), John Perkins will be speaking on topics discussed by his book, Confessions of an Economic Hitman.

The Earth Institute State of the Planet 06 Conference is Tuesday-Wednesday March 28 & 29 in Roone Arledge Auditorium and is free of charge and open to the public–even Columbia students! The agenda looks amazing–I fully intend to be there, classes and problem sets notwithstanding. Registration is online.
