In this first event, we will examine the concept of Sustainability, its varied interpretations, and connections with different fields of study. We will explore the concept of the "Tragedy of The Commons" in the context of the morality associated with the exploitation of resources and the human causes of climate change.
Before thinking about efficient ways to reduce our impact on the planet, we need to first establish exactly how much our different behaviors impact our carbon footprint. Future workshops will delve into more local issues and solutions to anthropogenic climate change and will culminate with a Keynote address by New Jersey's state climatologist: Dr. David Robinson on Saturday December 1st.
All proceeds for this event will go to local nonprofits (FFT, COA, Littoral, etc.)
