Sustainapalooza will be preceded by a public lecture by Dr. David W. Orr on Monday, February 29. The presentation of the 2015 Live Green Awards for Excellence in Sustainability and a public screening of the documentary, "Racing Extinction" follow Sustainapalooza and conclude the 2016 Symposium on Sustainability.
