Bucknell University will host its fifth annual Sustainability Symposium March 30–31. All parts of the event are free and open to the public.

This year's theme is "Generations of Power." Highlights include the first public presentation of the University's Sustainability Council; a faculty panel discussion titled "Spirit and Legacy of the Brundtland Commission;" presentations of student research and creative works; and the keynote address of Sophie Kivlehan, the granddaughter of climate scientist James Hansen and one of 21 young plaintiffs who have filed a landmark climate change lawsuit against the United State government.

The annual symposium explores diverse aspects of sustainability through multi-disciplinary perspectives. It features faculty-led panels, a keynote address, poster sessions featuring student research, creative displays, and demonstrations that exemplify sustainability and student-led activities oriented toward collective action on sustainability.

This year's symposium is co-presented by Bucknell's Environmental Humanities Working Group and the Bucknell Center for Sustainability & the Environment.
