22nd Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures

Greening the Campus: Values in Action

David Orr and Kevin Lyons spoke on “Greening the Campus: Values in Action” at the Twenty-Second Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures on October 26, 2002 at the Edwards Church in Northampton, MA.

Our regional colleges and universities are just one of a number of local institutions whose purchasing policies could be directed to more responsibly impact local economies and local communities. As active members of such institutions how can we help effect the change necessary to invigorate regional economies while employing environmental safeguards?

This year’s Annual E. F. Schumacher lecturers, joined by a panel including David Ehrenfeld (moderator), Grace Wicks Schlosser, and Julian Keniry, came with practical suggestions.
