6:30 - 8:00 p.m.  Program

8:00 - 8:30 p.m.  Book Signing

The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University invites you to a discussion of green building featuring David Orr, the Paul Sears Distinguished Professor of Environmental Studies and Politics and Special Assistant to the President of Oberlin College, and a James Marsh Professor at the University of Vermont.

More than 25 years ago, Orr organized studies of energy, water and materials use on several college campuses that helped to launch the green campus movement.
In 1996 he organized the effort to design the first substantially green building on a U.S. college campus, Oberlin’s Adam Joseph Lewis Center. The Center purifies all of its wastewater and is the first college building in the U.S. powered entirely by sunlight. 

There will be a book signing immediately following the eventfeaturing his two latest books: Hope is an Imperative and Down to the Wire - Confronting Climate Collapse.
