The School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) at IU Northwest invites the campus community and general public for an informal discussion about environmental issues impacting Northwest Indiana.

SPEA’s Northwest Indiana Community Healing by Education (NICHE) Lunch and Learn series takes place at 11:30 a.m., Wednesday, April 20 in the Library Conference Center. Attendees are invited bring their own lunch and join SPEA for great networking opportunities and free dessert.

Leading the discussion will be Dr. Lin Kaatz Chary, who will discuss whether “green jobs” exist and what types of jobs are “green jobs.” With more than 25 years of experience in environmental health issues, Chary is an expert in the area of community development, labor and the environment, with a focus on exposures to toxic chemicals and Great Lakes policy.

Lunch and Learn is an informal series dedicated to expanding awareness about current issues impacting Northwest Indiana. The program’s goal is to bring together all stakeholders in the community (citizens, local municipalities, businesses, students and faculty) in a format that will stimulate dialogue about regional sustainable development.
