Earth Day Colloquium

Friday, April 15, 2011


The annual Earth Day Colloquium is a one day event showcasing research being conducted in the field of Environment and Sustainability. Celebrating the interdisciplinary nature of this field, the Colloquium provides a forum for a broad range of topics in the Sciences, Engineering, Social Sciences, Business, Policy and Management.

The Earth Day Colloquium, organized every year by a committee of graduate students in the Environment and Sustainability Program, is in its eighth year and continues to grow in breadth and dimension as well as interest, drawing larger audiences every year.

Last year, at our seventh annual Colloquium, we expanded the breadth of research presented by including speakers from other universities in our region and members of environmental organizations. A keynote address was given by Dr. Dean Jacobs, Consultation Manager for the Walpole Island First Nation and founding Director of the Walpole Island Heritage Centre, and invited presentations were given by three dynamic speakers: Sean Galloway from City of London Urban Planning, Dr. Jamie Essex from the Univerity of Windsor, and Dr. Doug Haffner from the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research (GLIER) at U. of Windsor. This year we will continue to broaden the scope of the research presented, as well as draw in an increasingly diverse audience from both the university and greater London community.

The Earth Day Colloquium is an excellent opportunity for individuals interested in environment and sustainability to participate in a day dedicated to interdisciplinary sharing of ideas with an audience including students, faculty, and representatives from the London community, industry and government organizations.
