Talk on air quality at Center for Environment April 14

Center for the Environment

Educator and consultant Dr. Francis Koster will speak Tuesday, April 14, on the topic, “Communities Breathe Easier: Air Quality Success Stories,” at the Center for the Environment building on the Catawba College campus.

His presentation, scheduled for 6:30 p.m., is free and open to the public, but registration is required.

Koster received his doctorate from the Program for the Study of the Future at the University of Massachusetts.  He has worked in college administration, solar and wind energy and electronic medical data.

In addition to his consulting practice, Koster writes newspaper columns explaining problems facing America and introducing the reader to replicable, proven solutions already in place in U.S. communities.  These columns have been turned into a book called, “Discovering The New America – Where Local Communities Are Solving National Problems.” Three more books are due out in the summer of 2015.

To register for the event at the center, call 704-637-4727 or visit CenterForTheEnvironment.org .

   

The Center for the Environment was founded in 1996 to educate the college community and the public about environmental stewardship and sustainability, provide value-added education for students through interaction with thought leaders and opportunities for experiential learning, and bring diverse people and groups together to catalyze sustainable solutions to our most persistent environmental challenges.
