JACKSON, Tenn. – Sept. 28, 2010– Energy sustainability and stewardship will be the topic for the next Town and Gown series at Union University from Oct. 5-Nov. 2.
The Town and Gown series is an opportunity for community members interested in various topics to attend lectures and participate in discussions in a classroom setting. The classes are free and open to the public.
“Energy sustainability may be used a lot these days to tie environmental issues to practically everything we do every day at home, at work, in academia, in industry or in government,” said Don Van, professor of engineering at Union. “In this Town and Gown series, we will address the issues of energy sustainability and stewardship at a very practical level, aiming at the general public.
“The public must be on board for the noble goal of sustainability to be accomplished,” Van continued. “We believe education such as the one offered by this series is the essential beginning.”
The schedule for the series is:
All classes, with the exception of the Oct. 20 sessions, will be held in room D-3 in the Penick Academic Complex. The Oct. 20 classes will meet in the Carl Grant Events Center.
