David W. Orr – Paul Sears Distinguished Professor of Environmental Studies and Politics and senior adviser to the president of Oberlin College
The Oberlin Project started as a joint effort of the City of Oberlin, Oberlin College, and private and institutional partners to improve the resilience, prosperity and sustainability of their community. Their aim has been to revitalize the local economy, eliminate carbon emissions, restore local agriculture, food supply and forestry and create a new, sustainable base for economic and community development. So how are they doing? What goals have they met? What obstacles have they overcome and what challenges do they still face? Join us for a great conversation with David Orr who is the vision behind this full spectrum of sustainability. He is a visionary, a thought leader, and has strong opinions about any number of important issues impacting our planet. This show made possible due to the generous support of The Fairfax Companies.
