EUREKA –Sustainability will be the topic of the 59th annual William Thomas Jackson Lecture in Science at 7:30 p.m. March 27 in the Cerf Center at Eureka College.
The free presentation titled “Life-affirming Education” will be given by Sandra Lubarsky, chairwoman of the Department of Sustainable Development at Appalachian State University, Boone, N.C.
Lubarsky will talk about education in a time of ecological decline, the need to foster an ecological vision, and strategies for doing so. Taking seriously the question raised by conservation biologist Aldo Leopold, Lubarsky will reflect on what it means to be a “plain member and citizen” of this planetary community.
The Jackson Lecture was established to honor the late William Thomas Jackson, an alumnus of Eureka College who taught chemistry at the college for 36 years. For more information, contact Eureka College biology professor Michael Toliver at 467-6446.
