[21 February 2009] February Sustainability Lunch: A series of Sustainability Lunches has been started at UNR as a result of discussions in the Working Group on Curriculum of UNR's Sustainability Committee, which I happen to chair. These Lunches are an opportunity for faculty and students to meet and discuss sustainability issues. The Lunches take place on the last Wednesday of a months. Each monthly Lunch has a theme and an invited expert will introduce this theme. The next brown bag Sustainability Lunch will take place on Wednesday, February 25, 2009, at 12:00 - 1:30 PM in the Joe Crowley Student Union, Room #324. The February Lunch will focus on 'algal biofuels', and Leyla Hernandez, who is a student of John Cushman working in UNR's Algal Biofuel project, will give the introduction to this theme.
