Green Visions: releasing the "impatient creativity" of the next generation

LSC Living Lab/Facebook

Lake Superior College students are standing right at the intersection of science, social analysis and business.

Many people agree that climate change and sustainability need to be integral parts of our society going forward, but who is equipped to solve those problems and generate the solutions?

Dr. Randel Hanson and Dr. Michael Mageau are co-directors of the new Eco-Entrepreneurship Program and the associated Living Laboratory field site, and Hanson says up until now, we've been given a false choice between the economy and the planet. And he thinks this generation is just the one to, as he puts it, "hit Ctrl+Alt+Del" on that kind of thinking.

More information on LSC's Living Lab is available here, and information about the new Eco-Entrepreneurship degree program is here.
