Earth Futures: Saving the planet with the Wisconsin Idea
2020 marked the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and also the 50th anniversary of the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Both are part of the vast legacy of Wisconsin Idea investments in environmental stewardship. Dean Paul Robbins, of the Nelson Institute, will explore the next 50 years in words, pictures, and ideas, highlighting its flagship university, and bridging the very first Earth Day with a vision for the future, in which novel ecologies, climate change, new technology, and complex challenges lie ahead. The critical message: if you want to save the Earth, start with what people value.
