What does entrepreneurship have to do with saving the environment? Martin Ogle, the chief naturalist for the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority, says the same entrepreneurial spirit that leads people to take risks and find creative solutions to business problems is needed to address today’s environmental challenges.
Ogle and author/business professor Larry Robertson will present their case for melding entrepreneurship and the earth systems science in a presentation entitled An Entrepreneurial Look at Earth and its People. The presentation will begin at 7:00 tonight at the Arlington Central Library auditorium (1015 North Quincy Street).
Ogle says he hopes the presentation can be “a catalyst” for opening communication between the environmental and business communities.
