OCTOBER’S DDD WILL KICK OFF WITH A DISCUSSION ON SUSTAINABILITY
PHOENIX (Oct. 23, 2012) – For this month’s Downtown Devil Discussion, panelists and audience members will be discussing the topic of sustainability in Phoenix. Since Phoenix has been named as one of the least sustainable cities in the world, our panelists will focus on plans and innovations in sustainability, as well as their own thoughts and opinions on the issue.
Panelists include Stacey Champion, founder and owner of Champion PR and Consulting as well as creator and organizer at Rogue Green, Colin Tetreault, Senior Policy Advisor of Sustainability at the Office of the Mayor and faculty associate at the School of Sustainability at Arizona State University, Jonce Walker, the sustainability manager at Maricopa County, Kevin Gurney, an associate professor at the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University and Senior Sustainability Scientist at the Global Institute of Sustainability, and Adriana Kale Johnson, a sustainable tourism student.
Rogue Green will be sponsoring this event, and La Tolteca will be providing refreshments.
As always, Downtown Devil Discussions is integrated with social media where questions are accepted from both audience members and Twitter followers. Participants can follow the discussion on Twitter using the hashtag, #DDChat.
Downtown Devil Discussions will take place on Tuesday, October 30, at 7 p.m. in the First Amendment Forum at ASU’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, 555 N. Central Avenue.
