Scientist to speak on industrial sustainability as part of Winegard lecture series
Renowned food scientist Owen Fennema will give a public lecture "Industrial Sustainability - is this crucial goal attainable?" at the Arboretum at the University of Guelph Jan. 25 at 4 p.m.
Fennema's lecture is part of a W.C. Winegard Alumni Visiting Professorship program that is being held within the Ontario Agricultural College this year.
His lecture will address the roles of corporations, governments, international agencies and the public in industrial sustainability and will suggest a course of action.
This year's Winegard Professorship program will feature a series of lectures in OAC departments and the satellite colleges at Kemptville, Ridgetown and Alfred. The W.C. Alumni Winegard Professorship was established in 1975 by the Alma Mater Fund Advisory Council to allow the University to bring in distinguished professors from around the world to enhance academic programs. The annual program is designated to a different college each year.
