2019 Community Engagement Conference - Partnering for a Resilient and Sustainable Future

Ohio Union, The Ohio State University

About the Conference Theme - Partnering for a Resilient and Sustainable Future

Sustainability is motivated by the fundamental dependence of humans on the natural environment, including air, water, and land resources, and the desire to foster life on Earth now and in the future. It focuses on improving the well-being of people and communities by protecting earth's life support systems, reducing environmental impacts, and enhancing resource efficiency. Sustainability also depends on the resilience of natural and human systems, such as those providing energy and food, and the ability of communities to recover, adapt and flourish in the face of changing environmental, economic, and social conditions.

Agenda, including conference Keynote presentations.
