Speaker to address sustainable cities April 20 at Rockford College
From press release
Kimberly Gray, a professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Northwestern University, will present a talk titled “The Modern American City: Can We Ever Make it Sustainable?” at 4 p.m., April 20, at Rockford College’s Maddox Theatre.
Gray’s work is motivated by a commitment to protect and improve the environment, and a drive to solve interesting problems in science and engineering. In her talk, she discusses the various perspectives on “sustainability,” a term that means very different things to different people, and makes the case for why this is a pressing issue to be addressed sooner rather than later.
The program, part of the college’s Forum Series, is co-sponsored by the American Chemical Society-Rock River section. It is free and open to the public, although tickets must be reserved. For tickets and other information, call the college’s box office at (815) 226-4100. For more about the Forum Series, see www.rockford.edu/?page=ForumSeries.
