The lecture series is a bi-weekly event created to highlight sustainability research, teaching and innovation over a range of topics with the goal of generating conversation on sustainability across disciplines. As part of the Sustainability Lecture Series, we are inviting a diversity of speakers from both the University of Alberta and beyond, to cover a number of topical issues embodied by sustainability and sustainable development. 


The Sustainability Council’s ongoing lecture series explores local and global perspectives on sustainability, equity and climate action. Hear researchers and practitioners from the University of Alberta and beyond in fields ranging from engineering to ecology, public health to poetry, native studies to nanotechnology.
