Ursuline College 16th Annual Faculty Lecture Series:
Fracking and the Future of Sustainability Justice in Northeast Ohio

A local food movement is exploding in northeast Ohio, part of a growing network of sustainability and social and political activism. Meanwhile, horizontal hydraulic fracturing is coming to the region, potentially threatening the soil, air, and water that are essential to
emerging sustainable food systems. This multi-media presentation investigates the interacting political economies of global industrial energy and the local grassroots sustainability movement in our region. Is there a way forward that can include multiple ethical perspectives on, and visions for, “the land” in Northeast Ohio?

Elizabeth E. Meacham, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Religious Studies. She teaches courses in environmental philosophy, ecojustice, bioethics, and sustainability. She developed the curriculum for the Online Graduate Certificate in Sustainability and Spirituality, which will launch in the fall of 2015 in the MA in Ministry Department.

Thursday, October 30th at 7:00 PM

Pilla Dining Room

The lecture is free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception in the Commuter Lounge. For more information call, please 440 684 6069.
