The Precarious Alliance, a sustainability symposium conceived by Delaware Valley College President Dr. Joseph S. Brosnan, will be exploring energy-related issues such as climate change, green design and technology, fossil fuels and renewables, boomtowns and transition towns during its spring forum to be held April 3rd and 4th at the college in Doylestown.
To get the dialogue started, three keynote speakers will be featured. Among them, renowned environmentalist Bill McKibben, best-selling author and founder of 350.org, the first large-scale global grassroots climate change initiative.
The symposium will include a plenary panel, roundtables, workshops and more. According to Dr. Tanya Casas, Assistant Professor of Sociology, this year’s focus on energy is especially relevant to all who will be attending. “Whether you are impacted by the severe weather patterns the country has been experiencing, concerned about rising gas prices, or worried about the future of our environment, this symposium will offer open dialogue, creative ideas and real, practical approaches to addressing energy concerns.”
