“If You Can’t Stand the Heat: Women and the Global Response to Climate Change”

March 22, 2013

Sustainability expert Gloria Flora will discuss how women worldwide are confronting the challenge of climate change in a free public lecture, part of the Gonzaga Environmental Studies Speaker Series and is sponsored by the Gonzaga environmental studies, and women’s and gender studies departments. Flora founded Sustainable Obtainable Solutions in 2001 and serves as the organization’s executive director. The organization works to ensure the sustainability of public lands and the plant, animal and human communities that depend on them. In her 22-year career with the U.S. Forest Service, Flora became well known for her leadership in ecosystem management and for her courage and principles. As supervisor of the Lewis and Clark National Forest in north-central Montana, she made a landmark decision to prohibit natural gas leasing along the spectacular 356,000-acre Rocky Mountain Front near the Bob Marshall Wilderness, a place described as an American Serengeti for its abundant populations of wildlife, birds and fish.
