The first Earth Day, April 22, 1970, was a tipping point in the attention paid to our global environment and a precursor to many critical environmental advances since that time. This program looks back at the challenges faced in 1970, to evaluate where we are at present and what has been accomplished, and to look ahead as we confront the precarious situation, we face with climate change at The Ohio State University. While we have much to be proud of with respect to environmental advances, our greatest challenges may lie ahead. View this program co-hosted by the School of Environment and Natural Resources Environmental Professionals Network and the Sustainability Instituteto hear from leading environmental and sustainability Ohio State faculty and students and for an announcement on Ohio State’s action on climate change.
On Tuesday March 17, the Environmental Professionals Network (EPN) hosted a Zoom Webinar-based program instead of our standard EPN in-person breakfast program.
This EPN Zoom Webinar-based program, co-hosted with the Water Management Association of Ohio (WMAO), the Ohio Water Resources Center, and TerrAqua (a multi-disciplinary student organization at Ohio State), occurred through an online format instead of our standard EPN in-person breakfast program.
Numerous research agencies, including the U.S. Global Change Research Program, find that in the U.S. Midwest a variety of weather-related challenges are currently, and will increasingly, impact our local communities through such issues as extreme precipitation events and flooding, decreases in lake ice and snow cover, and increases in urban heat islands and drought nca2018.globalchange.gov/chapter/21/). These water-climate relationships are complex, dynamic and can be challenging to communicate. Join this program as we learn about the interactions between the water cycle, changing weather patterns, and how to understand and communicate these issues in natural resource management. This program is in alignment with the March 22, 2020 World Water Day theme, which is “about water and climate change – and how the two are inextricably linked.” (learn more at worldwaterday.org).
Thanks to our colleagues at the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center at Ohio State for helping to frame this program’s agenda.

The Center for Ethics and Human Values is proud to announce a new program called ETHOS – Ethics Throughout Ohio State – that highlights the ethical motivations and challenges that underlie much of the cutting edge research being done at The Ohio State University, with the aim of showing how scholars across many disciplines are helping to improve the life of our community. We are honored to have as our first subject Professor Rattan Lal, Distinguished University Professor of Soil Science and Director of Ohio State’s Carbon Management and Sequestration Center (https://senr.osu.edu/our-people/rattan-lal). Professor Lal has received numerous international awards for showing how understanding soil is crucial to promoting a healthier environment and more sustainable agriculture.
