Dean John Katers and Associate Dean Michael Zorn (College of Science and Technology) are leading 15 students from UW-Green Bay (one undergraduate and 14 from the Master’s in Sustainable Management) on a travel course to Chile, August 8-21. In the process, they are returning to the Universidad del Desarrollo (UDD) in Chile to present at the Second Green Innovation Conference: Water-Energy-Wastes Nexus. Zorn will give an overview of the issues impacting the Lower Fox River and Green Bay, with Katers follows on the topic of food, water and waste management. A few of the master’s students will also be speaking at the conference. UW-Green Bay hosted a contingent from Chile in June. The itinerary is extensive and includes visits to landfills, sustainable vineyards, an agricultural school, the Yeso Dam and more. This is part of a long-standing partnership with UDD and also a criteria of the $25,000 “100,000 Strong in the Americas” grant from the Coca Cola Foundation.
