Climate Week: "The Role of Health and Climate in Campus Sustainability" with Arlene Blum and Heather Henriksen

The Office for Sustainability presents: "The Role of Health and Climate in Campus Sustainability" with Arlene Blum, Scientist and Public Health Advocate, and Heather Henriksen, Director, Office for Sustainability

Scientist and public health advocate Arlene Blum will join Office for Sustainability Director Heather Henriksen to speak with students and staff about the centerpiece of Harvard’s sustainability efforts — a science-based goal to curb emissions 30% by 2016 — as well as an emerging area of focus for Harvard, the health and well-being of the campus community. Blum will speak about her research on chemicals in the environment and their impact on human health, as well as her advocacy to remove chemicals of concerns from everyday products and materials found in couches, furniture and more.
