|View Symposium on Sustainability through Aug. 28 |
Sustainability: Meeting the needs and values of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. UND's first-ever Symposium on Sustainability, which took place in the Chester Fritz Auditorium in April 2008, will be aired on Channel 3 through Thursday, Aug. 28, in 90-minute segments beginning at 1 and 9 p.m. each day. Each day's segments will be rebroadcast in a combined three-hour block beginning at midnight. The entire symposium comprises some 12 hours of recorded material. The Symposium on Sustainability was organized by UND's Northern Great Plains Center for People and the Environment and featured nationally known speakers, including explorer and environmentalist Jean-Michel Cousteau, activist Winona LaDuke, U.S. Senator Byron Dorgan, and many others, all sharing ideas on ways to achieve ecological integrity, economic security, and social justice.
