EPA administrator to speak at town hall meeting
LAWRENCE — U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson will speak at the University of Kansas next week on environmental issues and recent EPA actions to protect people’s health and environment.
The town hall forum featuring Jackson will be at 2:30 p.m. Monday, March 12, at Spooner Hall, and is free and open to the public.
Jackson was named by Newsweek as on of the “Most Important People in 2010” in addition to being featured in Time Magazine as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World” in both 2010 and 2011. She now leads the EPA in its efforts to ensure clean air and water for all Americans.
The event will be moderated by J. Christopher Brown, KU’s director of Environmental Studies. Following Jackson’s remarks, Brown will lead a question-and-answer segment with the audience.
“We in Environmental Studies are very excited to have Administrator Jackson visit KU. For our program and the campus, it is a chance for students, faculty and staff to meet and talk with someone who has a unique view of the ways that science meets policy at the federal level,” Brown said.
