The Council of Sustainable Leaders, a student-run affiliate organization of Penn State’s Sustainability Institute, will host thirteen Sustainability Showcases to make connections between faculty research, personal and professional interest, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals while broadening the discourse surrounding sustainability at the University. Selected speakers will give thirty-minute talks on various sustainability-related topics, answer questions and network with event attendees. The Sustainability Showcases will be held on Fridays throughout the fall semester from 12-1:30 p.m. and will be held on the third floor of the Huck Life Sciences Bridge. The events are free, open to faculty, staff and students and include lunch. “Translational Science and Reverse Translation strategies” will be presented by Dr. Esther Obonyo, interim director, Humanitarian Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship (HESE).
