Dr. Thomas to speak at College Connections series

College of St. Joseph Associate Professor Dr. Rebekah Thomas will lead a discussion about ecological footprints from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 4 at the Energy Innovation Center.

The talk, Ecological Footprints: What Size do You Wear?, will offer a discussion on solutions each of us can apply to our own decision making about our energy consumption. It is part of the GMP College Connections lecture series.

An ecological footprint translates the effect of humans on the planet into the cumulative amount of land and water that is required to provide the raw materials consumed and to get rid of or recycle the garbage produced in return.

The discussion is free and open to the public. The Energy Innovation Center is located at 70 Merchants Row in Downtown Rutland.
