Renewable power, energy efficiency and sustainable design are buzzwords that have only grown stronger and louder in recent years. Seattle is the proud home to many of the leading thinkers and doers who are elevating and advancing these fields in the Northwest and around the country.
This month, take advantage of a rare opportunity to get know your brilliant neighbors, and learn more about the future of energy and our community. Shoreline Community College is offering an outstanding free lecture series on Thursday evenings throughout April.
Titled "Energy in the Built Environment, the series offers a detailed glimpse into the changing roles of energy, technology and sustainability in our existing and future built communities. Among the nine speakers who will take the stage over four evenings are Denis Hayes, president and CEO of the Bullitt Foundation (full disclosure: Worldchanging received a Bullitt grant in 2008), K.C. Golden, Policy Director for Climate Solutions, and Bert Gregory, president and CEO of Mithun, and Tom Eckman, manager of conservation resources for the Northwest Power and Conservation Council.
The lectures will take place Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. April 9, 16, 23 and 30 at Shoreline's 9000 Building (PUB), 16101 Greenwood Ave. N. For more details and to register, click here.
