EnviroThursday - "Can We Copenhagenize Saint Paul?"

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Thursday Apr 6, 2017
Olin-Rice Science Center 250

Speakers:  Anne Hunt, Environmental Policy Director, City of Saint Paul; Colleen Sheehy, Director of Public Arts Saint Paul; and Ken Smith, President & CEO District Energy

The city of Copenhagen, and Denmark as a whole, stand out in the world's imagination as a beacon of sustainability. Noted for its bike friendly design, commitment to green energy, and vibrancy of public arts, urban planners world-over look to Copenhagen as a model of sustainable development.

In 2016, a large group of Macalester faculty traveled to Copenhagen to see sustainability in practice and bring these stories back to campus. For this EnviroThursday session, we are joined by Saint Paul leaders in government, public arts and business, who also recently traveled to Copenhagen. They will share insights about how we might Copenhagenize Saint Paul (and the rest of Minnesota).

Refreshments provided.
