Join us at Delaware Valley College, in Doylestown, PA, for The Precarious Alliance, a sustainability symposium that explores present and related to how we can better adapt human networks to reduce and reverse trends of environmental degradation, economic instability, and social inequalities.
THE PRECARIOUS ALLIANCE 2014: Energy in Transition
Conceived by College President Dr. Joseph S. Brosnan as a forum for the exchange of cross-disciplinary perspectives, civil dialogue, innovative thinking, and practical solutions, since 2010 The Precarious Alliance symposium has brought together academics, educators, business leaders, policymakers, environmental advocates, planners, engineers, attorneys, and farmers from around the world to discuss and debate current issues related to sustainability.
The 2014 symposium, subtitled "Energy in Transition,” will be devoted to energy-related issues such as fossil fuels and renewables; green design and technology; federal and local energy policy; energy finance and economics; energy consumption and conservation cultures; boomtowns and transition towns; and social and environmental impacts.
Along with papers, panels, workshops, roundtables and interactive poster sessions, the conference will include a keynote address by Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature and Eaarth and founder of 350.org, on the evening of April 3.
