What will it take to switch to a sustainable energy future?

Tuesday, January 29, 2013 5:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Play Switch trailerCome join the Sustainable Energy Initiative on January 29th for a night of entertainment and thought-provoking discussion as we examine the world of energy and the challenges that exist in implementing more sustainable global energy infrastructure.  

First, learn what the Oregon State and Corvallis community is doing to address these issues at the Sustainability Info Fair. If you're looking to get involved at OSU, or are a high school student considering applying to OSU, this is a great opportunity to learn about programs available to you.

Next, we will follow Dr. Scott Tinker on his adventure around the world to discover the true nature of sustainable energy in his new documentary "Switch." Finally, we will be hosting a question and answer session with a panel of energy experts from research, government, and industry to discuss key issues relating to sustainable energy development and implementation.  

Schedule of events:  

  • 5:30pm: Doors open, sustainability info fair starts
  • 6:30pm: Switch filming begins
  • 8:00pm: Energy experts discussion panel Q&A session
