Solving the World’s Wicked Problems Through Local Sustainability Initiatives

Melissa Hinten, lecturer and director of the sustainability program in the Department of Geography, will present "Solving the World's Wicked Problems Through Local Sustainability Initiatives" Friday, March 8.

Sustainability takes a scientific and goals-based approach to solve the world's wicked problems. Hinten will showcase examples of these approaches, including student-designed greenhouse gas inventories, and service-learning partnerships.

The UT Science Forum takes place Fridays from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.
