1. Dr. Ed L. Schrader- “Importance of Environmental Protection” Members of 21st century society will confront increasing uncertainty and unpredictable change in their lives. Brenau’s commitment is to engender in our students a sense of curiosity rather than fear, of innovation rather than acceptance.
2. Dr. J. Marshall Sheperd – “Prehistoric, Contemporary, Futuristic: For Water, It’s All The Same, Or Is It?” Dr. Sheperd will focus on water issues and the correlations to climate change, while offering ideas on sustainable ways individuals and businesses can help conserve Georgia’s environment.
3. Dr. William (Bill) Coates, Jr. – “Theological View of Stewardship”
Dr. Coates’ style is thought-provoking, memorable and often life-changing, but sprinkled with humor and wit.
4. Dr. James W. Porter- “The Effects of Sea-Level Rise on Georgia”
Dr. Porter will present the latest long-term projection for sea-level rise, which is due to glacial melt and the thermal expansion of the oceans. He will focus his brief talk on these projections and their effect on coastal Georgia. This information will be used to highlight the need for evidenced-based decision-making in setting environmental policy for our state.
Target Audience: General public, students, business reps
