The College of St. Scholastica is in the midst of their annual Peace & Justice Series. From September 2017 to March 2018, St. Scholastica will be hosting a variety of lectures focusing on sustainable living. The first lecture was given by Andrew Revkin, current reporter at ProPublica and former reporter at The New York Times. His lecture was titled “Ending Life as We Knew It” and spoke about the “destruction of the Amazon rain forest, sustainable development, and climate change, particularly as it affects the North Pole environment.” The rest of this year’s Alworth Center for Peace and Justice Lecture Series lineup is:
Oct. 24-“The Truth About Nuclear Energy” with Gwyneth Cravens
Nov. 9-“Economic Growth Still Matters” with Bob Hoffman
Feb. 8-“Shifting to Solar and Wind Power” with Janet Larsen
Mar. 20-“Enviromental Stewardship as a Personal Calling” with Andrew Hoffman
