Partnership for change

Understanding how to effectively address student alcohol use, especially the increasingly dangerous trends associated with binge drinking, has challenged virtually every educational institution across the country, including the University of Delaware.

“The show's focus is on contemporary social and environmental issues with an emphasis on solutions,” Barnes said, adding that each will feature interviews with “some of the country’s most influential social and environmental thinkers, scholars and individuals who possess in-depth knowledge about particular issues.”

Barnes said the goal “is to help the listening audience understand the issue, the impact it has on their lives, and then offer suggestions and strategies for making improvements.” 

Guests are scheduled as follows:

  • Feb. 12 – Amy Roe, a UD graduate, will discuss her research on the collapse of the American Shad in the Susquehanna River. 
  • Feb. 26 -- Rob Dietz from the Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy and author of a new book on the subject titled Enough is Enough.
  • March 5 -- Joe Zammit-Lucia will discuss the future of energy and the transition to a renewable energy system.
  • March 19 – Joseph Tainter, renowned historian and anthropologist.
