K-STATE TO HOST DIALOGUE ON SUSTAINABILITY
The Consortium for Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability and its partners will host the fifth annual Dialogue on Sustainability: Green Jobs -- Finding the Right Path Forward, Thursday, July 22, at the Leadership Studies Building. The consortium is headquartered at K-State, where administrative leadership is provided by the Center for Hazardous Substance Research in the College of Engineering.

The focus of the one-day dialogue is to discuss current efforts to integrate concepts of sustainability, the green economy and green jobs into industrial, agricultural and community efforts in Kansas and beyond. Attendees will participate in discussions about what is needed for the success of these efforts and what higher education can do to prepare adults to meet these needs.

Sessions will be held throughout the day on Kansas wind/renewable energy efforts, "greening" food systems from an employment and production standpoint, and developing a vision for sustainable communities and local economies. Activities will include panel discussions, small group dialogs, posters, exhibits and more.

Exhibits and posters, including information on courses related to green jobs and sustainability are welcome. Those interested in presenting a poster at the event or who would like to set up an exhibit, should contact the Center for Hazardous Substance Research at chsr@k-state.edu or call 785-532-6519.

Preregistration is encouraged. For further information, go to http://www.engg.ksu.edu/CHSR/sustainability.
