Upcoming Seminar Series: Our species, Homo sapiens, has been sustained by planet Earth’s eco-systems for over 200,000 years. Ongoing rapid accelerations in human population growth, technology and global affluence since the mid-twentieth century, however, are inflicting detrimental effects on the Earth’s ecosystems that are increasing the rate of extinction of species and imperiling the future of our own. This public seminar series, which will be presented by University of Illinois experts, will describe these challenges to sustainability and ways to address them. The seminar will be Sundays, October 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 and November 5 at 11:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Watch for more details.
