PITT-BRADFORD TO HOST PANEL DISCUSSION ON SUSTAINABILITY IN APPALACHIA

PITT-BRADFORD TO HOST PANEL DISCUSSION
ON SUSTAINABILITY IN APPALACHIA


BRADFORD, Pa. – Earl Gohl, federal co-chairman of the Appalachian Regional Commission, will join a panel of local experts in an informal discussion at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford next week about building sustainable development in the Alleghenies.

The panel discussion will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 10 in the Mukaiyama University Room of the Frame-Westerberg Commons. The event is free and open to the public.

Sustainable development is a long-term approach to economic change that seeks to balance economic, social and environmental needs and priorities in planning for the well-being of current and future generations.

Dr. William Schumann, assistant professor of anthropology and member of the campus sustainability committee, said, “We are very pleased to be hosting this important discussion about the future of our region. While extractive industries like coal, oil and natural gas will likely be an important part of the regional economy for the foreseeable future, encouraging economic diversification around the concepts of protecting our natural and cultural heritage is always in the public interest.”

Other members of the panel, which will be moderated by Schumann, are Dr. Livingston Alexander, president of Pitt-Bradford; Dr. Matt Kropf, director of the Energy Institute at Pitt-Bradford and chairman of the Pitt-Bradford Sustainability Committee; Dr. David Schummer, assistant farm manager and education director at Canticle Farms in Allegany, N.Y.; Linda Devlin, executive director of the Allegheny National Forest Visitors Bureau; and Blaine Puller, a retired forester from Kane Hardwoods/Collins Pine.

Gohl became federal co-chairman of the ARC in March 2010 and has more than 20 years of experience in Pennsylvania state and local government.

Sustainable Development - beware the implications. This is far more than take only pictures, leave only footprints. Research Agenda 21, this is a subset of that. America will not be America when that is implemented. It might be worth missing a few reality shows on TV watching some educational documentaries off the Web. Get the other side of this issue.
