Speaker to discuss forests and renewable energy Oct. 11

A co-founder of Greenpeace will give a campus talk on the use of wood as a source of renewable energy this Thursday, Oct. 11.

Patrick Moore, who is no longer with the international environmental organization, will speak at 6 p.m. in Room 180, Prince Lucien Campbell Hall. The talk is free and open to the public.

Moore speaks on sustainable energy and renewable resources. He has been involved in environmental activism for more than 40 years.

The event is titled “Trees are the Answer: Forests and the Environment” and will address Moore’s thoughts on the economics and science around wood as a renewable source of materials and energy.

Moore’s talk is free for all UO students, faculty, and staff, and seating will be arranged on a first-come, first-served basis. The event will also include a question-and-answer section.

The Lundquist College of Business Center for Sustainable Business practices and the Seneca Company are sponsoring the event.
