Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore is scheduled to present a free public lecture at the University of Hawaii at Manoa in April.
The seminar is slated as the capstone for a day-long summit called Ascent — an event organized by the university and U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz that’s bringing together dignitaries from around the country to come up with solutions for Hawaii’s most pressing environmental problems. Topics include renewable energy, sustainable energy, water use and the impacts of human activity and climate change on essential resources.
The event is part of the Stephen and Marylyn Pauley “Seminar in Sustainability” series, which is put together by the UH’s Sea Grant College program and periodically hosts distinctive speakers.
The seminar is free and will be held at the Stan Sheriff Center April 15 at 7 p.m.
