Weston Roundtable: Michael P. Washburn, Ph.D. - Critical Thinking in Sustainability: What does it mean to have a professional opinion?

Date: 

Thursday, March 13, 2014 - 4:15pm

Sustainability topics often lack the nuances of critical professional insight. As natural resource professionals, leaders must understand these nuances, know the facts, ask questions, and offer practical solutions to complex problems. Washburn will discuss his experiences related to bottled water, logging, boycotts, and climate change to illustrate how aspiring environmentalists can elevate the debate and ultimately help solve some of the world's most daunting sustainability challenges. 1106 Mechanical Engineering Building. 4:15-5:15 p.m. Information: 890-2517, allez@wisc.edu
