HWS Welcomes ‘Living on Earth’ Host

The HWS Finger Lakes Institute and the Sustainable Community Development program will welcome award-winning journalist Steve Curwood, the host and executive producer of “Living on Earth,” Public Radio International’s environmental news show, broadcast nationally and in the Finger Lakes region on National Public Radio affiliates WEOS, WXXI and WSKG.

Hosted as part of the Sustainable Community Development 2015 Spring Lecture Series, Curwood will present, “Meeting the Challenge of Communicating Sustainability and Climate Change,” at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 13 in Albright Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public. 

Curwood will share his approach to communicating sustainability and climate change, with emphasis about our relationship to the environment and its role in our lives. The forum will focus on the challenge of getting an important message to an audience already inundated with conflicting information about our climate and personal action. 

In its fourth year, the Sustainable Community Development Lecture Series features regional and national speakers, providing public perspectives on sustainable community development and resiliency. Audiences include students, faculty, staff, community leaders and engaged residents of the Finger Lakes region.
