The Environment is Us
-Book Signing and Author Q&A
April 22, 2020 is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. With this historic event being at risk of getting drowned out by the steady news stream on the coronavirus pandemic, Arizona State University and the nonprofit project OneWaterOneHealth of the ASU Foundation will host an event to discuss emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic in the larger context of the global sustainability and climate crises.
The discussion of challenges and potential solutions to the crises will be informed by a new book, Environment, just published in time for Earth Day 50 by Bloomsbury.
In his new book, Environment, coming out in April 2020, author and renowned scientist Rolf Halden explores our essential interconnectedness with our surroundings. In observations both personal and scientific, Halden reflects on how our daily lifestyle decisions are impacting the places we occupy, our health, and humanity’s prospect of survival.
Hosted by the Global Futures Laboratory, Biodesign Institute and the Narrative Storytelling Initiative, the event will include a book reading, Q&A with journalism professor Steven Beschloss and book signing.
DATE: April 22, 2020 (Earth Day)
TIME: 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM
Senior Sustainability Scientist Rolf Halden directs the Center for Environmental Health Engineering in ASU’s Biodesign Institute and is a professor in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
