CU Denver Wirth ChairThe Path Toward Sustainability: Lessons from Denmark

July 7th
6:00-8:00 PM
The Alliance Center
1536 Wynkoop Street, Denver

In May, a group of people from Denver and across the US traveled to Denmark with the Wirth Chair and the American-Danish Business Council to learn about Danish solutions to sustainability issues. The group met with Danish leaders; discussed Denmark’s plans to eliminate fossil fuels by 2050; learned about industrial symbiosis and climate adaptation planning; saw innovative renewable energy technologies including massive wind turbines, wave energy and district heating plants; and toured Samsø Island, where 100% of electric energy comes from renewable sources!

On July 7, members of the trip delegation will share some of the lessons learned in Denmark and lead a discussion on how these lessons might apply in Colorado and in the US. Our speakers will be K.K. DuVivier, Professor of Law at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law; Gretchen Fillmore, founder and director of Terra2Watts; Laurie Strong, attorney; and John Powers, founder and president of the Alliance for Sustainable Colorado.

rescue tigerSustainability Wins Lunch and Learn: Lions and Tigers and Puppies, Oh My!

July 9th
12:00-1:00 PM
The Alliance Center
1536 Wynkoop Street, Denver

Animals, big and small, suffer from abuse and neglect all over the world. However, two Colorado-based organizations are working tirelessly to change the fate for some of these animals. serendipity
The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg specializes in rescuing, rehabilitating and providing life-long homes for large carnivores and other animals because approximately 25,000 wild animals are living in inappropriate and private homes across the United States. All Aboard Animal Rescue Colorado works to rescue, foster, and rehome as many animals as they can from Colorado (and surrounding states) to bring down the euthanasia rate in Colorado of over 35,000 animals every year.

While the reality of this situation may be depressing, thankfully, you can come and learn about what these two incredible organizations are doing to help and protect animals everywhere.

Lunch will be provided by Serendipity Catering, and puppies will also be available for adoption! Please register here.
