WEST LAFAYETTE – The conversation around climate change and the environment is always ongoing, and a Purdue-hosted panel hopes to discuss the history and importance of local sustainability practices.

The virtual panel, “Hindsight 202One in West Lafayette-Sustainability Edition,” hosted by students in Purdue’s Ecological Sciences and Engineering program, is part of a larger symposium discussing local and global sustainability issues and practices. It will be held March 30 beginning with a question-and-answer format at 6 p.m. for panelists that will eventually lead to smaller breakout rooms for participants.

The event is free to attend and open to the public, although registration is required in advance.

Kayla Young, a graduate student in the Ecological Sciences and Engineering program at Purdue, said one of the reasons the local panel came about was after she became involved in the local environmental community.

“I think there are a lot of community members who are interested,” Young, who is also a member of the West Lafayette Go Greener Commission, said. “I’m hoping to have a broad audience of people, both in and outside of West Lafayette who are affected by what happens here, people who haven’t yet taken the time to think about sustainability, because it impacts their life most definitely.”
