Lunch with CEO of Sotra

posted Sep 29, 2013, 8:53 PM by George Ball   [ updated Oct 2, 2013, 11:51 AM by Chirag Jain ]

Lunch with Mac Ling (CEO & Darden Alum)
Sotra Project - http://sotraproject.com/

Friday, October 11th (1:30 - 2:30 PM)
TBD

Lunch Provided

SotraProject is about seeing the “real” city, experiencing the DNA of a city, and letting it talk to you by hearing the heartbeat of the city through its residents, food, alleyways and culture.

Our experiential learning trips look to facilitate personal growth and transformation through immersive cultural experiences.  Our urbanTOX Experiences dare you to search for a city’s TOX – its high-mobility human gene, its collective pride, its soul, and worldview – and to see how it is part of a global picture that includes you.

We see our Experiences not as tourist travel, but rather a learning trip; it is one where you are learning from the classroom of the city.  We are here to share the beauty that we have found in urban environments and its people with you.

It is our ultimate desire that you will take what they have learned through your experience with us and use it to positively impact the community where you live.

Germany’s Energy Transition: Any Lessons for North America?

Germany has set aggressive renewable energy targets as well as goals for phasing out use of nuclear energy. Dr. Hermann Ott, scientist and member of the German Federal Parliament (Bundestag) for the Green Party will join us for a discussion about Germany’s energy transition. He will also answer questions about potentially applicable lessons for North America, as well as international collaborations to address climate change.

Dr. Ott, who is also visiting Brandeis and Johns Hopkins Universities, holds degrees from the London School of Economics and Political Science, and the Free University Berlin. Dr. Ott has been a speaker on climate policy since 2009, and was director of The Climate Program for one of Germany’s leading think tanks, the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy. He is currently a member of the Bundestag’s Commission on Growth, Prosperity and Quality of Life. Dr. Ott brings together the expertise of a renowned scientist and politician in his work on climate policy and transition to renewable energy (called Energiewende). He is also the author of the 2007 article, International Climate Policy 2020: A Challenge for German (Environmental) Foreign Policy.

Dr. Ott will discuss the challenges and successes of Germany’s energy revolution, and his vision for how distributed generation by solar and wind energy enables democratization of energy resources.  Bring your questions about traditional energy sources, business model challenges/opportunities for solar and wind companies, climate science and more!

This event is in collaboration with the Boell Foundation and U.Va.’s Center for German Studies.
