A University of Tennessee environmental engineer has been named the state-s liaison at the National Town Meeting for a Sustainable America May 2-5 in Detroit.
Lori Kincaid, a researcher in UT-s Center for Clean Products and Clean Technologies, will help showcase Tennessee projects to create sustainable economic development and minimize environmental damage, such as electric city buses in Chattanooga or farm management practices that pollute less.
“More individuals, businesses, and communities are undertaking projects to improve quality of life of their residents,” Kincaid said. “This meeting will demonstrate new technologies, goods, and services to encourage sensible use of resources, ensure a robust economy and innovate partnerships to reach new goals.”
The meeting is sponsored by the President’s Council for Sustainable Development and the Global Environment & Technology Foundation. More information is available at http://www.sustainableamerica.org or call 1-888-333-6878.
