Needs a location

Greetings All, I've just returned from the Growing Power Farm Conference... http://www.growingpow... (http://www.growingpowerfarmconference.org/) http://www.growingpow... (http://www.growingpower.org/) And, I would be happy to hold a free presentation on their methods of intensive urban agriculture that I learned from the conference (I was able to attend only due to a scholarship given to me by Growing Power, so I feel the need to pay it forward by offering this presentation without cost). I'm floating this to see if there's interest, and to hear possible suggestions for presentation venues. I look forward to your feedback. Regards, Jason Burke

Climate Change and Food Security
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

Thursday, April 3 2:15 - 3:30 p.m. Busch Student Center 253 C Saint Louis University Catastrophic climate change is rapidly heading our way. It will happen much sooner and be far worse than is generally understood...and can only be solved / managed globally (by global citizens).Well within the lifetime of undergraduates, climate change is likely to become the most pressing problem facing humanity. This panel will generate a discussion on climate change...including how we will feed current students in the coming decades (as planetary climate changes); and how scientists could do a better job of informing politicians (and the public) about climate change. http://www.slu.edu/atlas-week-home/climate-change-at-slu-food-for-thought
