Silent Spring + 50: Lessons from San Diego’s bees and bays
This is the third of a series of public events organized by the Ethics Center and six regional colleges and universities to mark the 50th anniversary of Silent Spring by bringing the public, scientists and university students together to explore how science can best serve society.
This discussion is co-sponsored by the University of California San Diego’s Greenovation Forum program and the Center for Ethics in Science and Technology on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the publication of Rachel Carson's landmark book, Silent Spring.
The Greenovation Forums are organized by UC San Diego’s Sustainability Solutions Institute and sponsored by the Scripps Foundation for Science and the Environment. The goal of the forums is to foster linkages related to environmental sustainability between researchers at UC San Diego and members of the regional community.
