  • Terry Tempest Student Dialogue - Talking on Water: Transforming Education into Action
    Oct 27 (5 - 7 pm)
    The Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education at Florida Gulf Coast University is holding its Terry Tempest Student Dialogue this October 27, 2014. One of the primary goals of the Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education is "To educate for an ecologically literate citizenry and to advance civic engagement in the critical environmental issues of the Western Everglades and Barrier Islands." For the last seven years in order to achieve this goal, every fall we hold our Terry Tempest Student Dialogue to give students a chance to engage in current topics relevant to our local community with knowledgeable speakers that are leading experts in this area. This year the Dialogue focuses on water quality, watershed protection, and its effects on coastal habitats. The working title for the event is "Talking on Water: Transforming Education into Action". Our goal is motivate students to take action on these important issues. One of the primary goals of the Dialogue is to educate and empower students to voice their opinion towards the protection and conservation of our water resources and associated wildlife by discussing Amendment 1 at the end of the panel discussion, before Q&A. The dialogue is in a format that includes a networking session with outside vendors, a panel discussion, and Q&A. We would be honored if your organization could send a representative to attend as a vendor for this event. We are happy to supply tables, chairs and refreshments. Vendors can arrive as early as 4pm to start setting up and the networking session begins at 5pm.
