Conference to explore sustainability

The School of Law’s 25th annual Red Clay conference will explore the environmental costs and benefits of sustainable business, government and energy in Georgia.

The event will take place March 1 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Larry Walker Room of Dean Rusk Hall. It is open free to all UGA faculty, staff and students. Members of the general public are welcome to attend, but will need to pay for their lunch. For planning purposes, registration is requested at before Feb. 27.

Specifically, conference panelists will look at how Southeastern cities are using the law to encourage sustainable business and government processes; the environmental, economic and legal costs and benefits of sustainable energy sources; and whether corporations have a responsibility to adopt eco-friendly practices.

Sponsored by the school’s Environmental Law Association, the Red Clay conference is organized by Georgia Law students to increase public awareness of environmental issues of regional, national and international significance.
