Join us for an informal discussion with UCF Sociology Professor Penelope Canan, Ph.D., on the importance of teaching conservation to children. She will speak about the benefits of learning about the environment at a young age.

The event will be held at the Orange County Regional History Center, which is located at 65 E. Central Blvd., Orlando, FL 32801. You can find directions at their website, thehistorycenter.org.

Dr. Canan has been at the forefront of environmental conservation internationally. She served as the Executive Director of the Global Carbon Project in Tsukuba, Japan; was listed on the “Montreal Protocol Who’s Who” by the United Nations Environment Program; and won the “Best of the Best” Award for Ozone Layer Protection from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, among many other awards and recognitions.

She has co-authored two influential books, “Ozone Connections: Expert Networks in Global Environmental Governance” and “SLAPPs: Getting Sued for Speaking Out.”
