Three Keynote Speakers Announced For Precarious Alliance Symposium At Delaware Valley College

Bill McKibben, renowned environmentalist, best-selling author and founder of 350.org, the first large-scale global grassroots climate change initiative will be one of three keynote speakers to be featured at the Precarious Alliance symposium to be held April 3-4, 2014 at the college in Doylestown, PA.

Time Magazine called McKibben, “the planet’s best green journalist” and the Boston Globe said in 2010 that he was “probably the country’s most import environmentalist.”

Woodrow W. Clark II, MA3, Ph. D, is founder of Clark Strategic Partners, a full service strategic planning consulting firm devoted to working with clients in the public, private and non-profit areas across the globe to implement sustainable environments, renewable energy solutions and infrastructures. He is a long-time advocate for the environment and renewable energy, is an internationally recognized author, lecturer, public speaker and advisor specializing in economics and policies for global sustainable communities in the “Green Industrial Revolution” (GIR). He was one of the contributing scientists to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (UNIPCC), which as an organization was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in December 2007 along with Al Gore and his film “An Inconvenient Truth.
Scott Brusaw, President and CEO of Solar Roadways, Inc. is the third keynote speaker. His company’s primary purpose is to replace petroleum-based asphalt roads and surfaces—whether interstate highways, downtown streets, residential lanes, or dirt and gravel roads—with a series of structurally engineered Solar Road Panels that can be driven on.  The collected solar energy from these panels can then be used to power nearby homes, stores and businesses, amusement parks, schools, and remote military locations. The Solar Roadways Project has the capacity to evolve into an intelligent, self-healing, decentralized (and secure) power grid, which would allow homes or businesses to receive power through their parking lots and driveways.

This spring’s Precarious Alliance sustainability symposium will be exploring energy-related issues such as climate change, green design and technology, fossil fuels and renewables, boomtowns and transition towns.   The symposium will include a plenary panel that explores the future of several forms of energy, roundtables, workshops and more.

Since 2010, The Precarious Alliance symposium has brought together academics, educators, business leaders, policymakers, environmental advocates, planners, engineers, attorneys and farmers from around the world to brainstorm issues related to sustainability.
