      Sustainability Showcase: John Gershenson

      The Penn State HESE Program and Sustainable Ventures in Kenya Dr. Gershenson will discuss the Penn State Humanitarian Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship program and some of the sustainable ventures they are working on now. In particular, he will discuss two ventures in Kenya that they are working. In one Dr. Gershenson will highlight their use of distributed, local manufacturing to eliminate long-distance shipping and support more effective rural hospitals. In the other example, he will discuss the production of cooking briquettes from invasive plant species to eliminate deforestation. Dr. Gershenson will also discuss how new sustainable technologies could be incorporated into future HESE ventures, so please bring your research ideas. _______ The CSL will be hosting twelve Sustainability Showcases this fall to make connections between faculty research, personal and professional interest and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals while broadening the discourse surrounding sustainability. Speakers are invited to give a thirty-minute talk, answer questions and hang around to mingle with attendees. This year, the theme for the showcase series is: The Time is Now.  Events are on Fridays 12 - 1:30 pm, are held in 233AB HUB and include lunch for RSVP'd guests.
