Eban GoodsteinLEWISBURG, Pa. — Environmental educator Eban Goodstein will visit Bucknell University Monday, March 26, to lead two discussions about environmental sustainability.

Both events, which are free and open to the public, are sponsored by the Bucknell University Environmental Center (BUEC).

An economist and author, Goodstein is director of the Bard Center for Environmental Policy and director of two national educational initiatives on global warming. He was the driving force behind "Focus the Nation," the largest teach-in in U.S. history.

The environmental educator believes the best hope to avert eco-disaster lies in deploying a new generation of leaders for sustainability who understand the urgency of making major changes in the next decade, early in their professional careers.

Goodstein will participate in the BUEC Lunch Bag Series, "Futures in Environmental Sustainability," from noon to 1 p.m. in the Environmental Center, located across from the Observatory. He will discuss preparing for and developing a career in sustainability, including graduate school opportunities. Participants are invited to bring lunch; light snacks and beverages are provided.

Goodstein also will present the talk, "Climate Change Avatars: Building a Leadership Career in Sustainability," in the Gallery Theatre of the Elaine Langone Center at 4 p.m.

During his presentation, Goodstein will outline the challenges and timelines of climate crisis and provide solutions that focus on promoting professional careers with sustainability at their core.
