On On Wednesday, August 27 at 6 pm Susan Ferentinos, Public History Researcher, Consultant, and Writer, will present a program entitled “Historic Preservation as a Green Alternative”. Preserving historic buildings can contribute to a sense of place by preserving community character and creating a link to previous generations. It also often is a far greener option than new building construction. In this talk, Ferentinos explores recent efforts between the historic preservation and green building movements to create a sustainable future together by combining energy conservation with the reuse of existing building stock.
On Wednesday, September 24 at 6 pm Jacqui Bauer, City of Bloomington Sustainability Coordinator, and Jerry Ulrey, former Vectren Corporation executive, will present a program entitled “The Monroe County Energy Challenge”. Bauer and Ulrey will present on local efforts to develop and implement a community energy plan as part of the Georgetown University Energy Prize competition.
