Panel to discuss sustainability and science in upcoming election

On Tuesday, Oct. 25, the school of global environmental sustainability at Colorado State University is hosting a panel discussion about the upcoming election and the implications of sustainability and science.

The panel will take place at Avogadro’s Number, located at 605 S. Mason Street, from 5-6:30 p.m. on Oct. 25. The event is free to the public.


The panelists will discuss the differing opinions between current republican and democratic priorities. They will also discuss how this election is unlike past elections in the treatments of environmental and scientific issues by the parties.

Panelists will include:

  • Peter Backlund, School of Global Environmental Sustainability
  • Michele Betsill, Department of Political Science
  • Ken Shockley, Department of Philosophy
  • Courtney Schultz, Department of Forest and Rangeland Stewardship

The event will be moderated by Gene Kelly, Associate Director for Research and Development at SoGES, Deputy Director of the Agricultural Experiment Station and Associate Dean of Extension.

The event will be part of the Managing the Planet series. The Managing the Planet series is made up of six panels where they discuss many different topics that are related to sustainability.

The main question that is being asked is whether or not sustainability and science matters in this election.
