National Issue Forum at Stander

National Issue Forum at Stander

Are you looking for an opportunity to engage in dialogue with people of differing perspectives around climate change solutions -- one of the complex problems of our times?

The Hanley Sustainability Institute at the University of Dayton is convening a National Issues Forum on Climate Choices. And we invite you to participate, whether you are from UD, Dayton, or the Greater Miami Valley region. Your contribution will help shape campus and community climate action planning.

We are looking for a broad range of perspectives. These deliberations work best when there is a cross-section of the community represented -- across ages, backgrounds, and opinions. We seek personal experiences and concerns to help us identify and weigh trade-offs and drawbacks. In these deliberations we will consider solutions for UD, the community, and beyond.

We consider your voice and your participation valuable, whatever your level of familiarity with the issue.

Sponsored by: Hanley Sustainability Institute and Graduate Academic Affairs, in conjunction with the Brother Joseph W. Stander Symposium.

Please join us. Register below.

When: Wednesday, April 5, 2017
Morning Session: 10:15 a.m. - noon
Afternoon Session: 1:00 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.

Where: University of Dayton's Roesch Library, first floor Knowledge Hub

How: Pre-registration is encouraged to help us prepare the small-group dialogue spaces. You can register the day of the forum in the lobby of Roesch Library prior to the forum start time.


In small group discussions participants will weigh options and trade-offs for what we as a community are willing to do to address climate change. Your contribution will shape campus and community sustainability planning.
