The University of Florida Levin College of Law’s 15th Annual Public Interest Environmental Conference (PIEC) will be held Feb. 26 – Feb. 28, 2009, at the College of Law campus in Gainesville, Fla. The theme of this year’s conference is “Beyond Doom and Gloom: Illuminating a Sustainable Future for Florida.” The conference will focus on farsighted and innovative approaches to our environmental problems, emphasizing sustainability solutions from science and technology, progressive regulation and economics and behavioral change through communication and social marketing.

The PIEC attracts top legal practitioners, scholars and scientists from around the nation to discuss and debate Florida’s environmental issues and each year the PIEC’s impressive speaker roster grows. This year the PIEC is proud to present two distinguished keynote speakers, Victoria Tschinkel and Rena Steinzor. Victoria Tschinkel is the current Chairman of 1,000 Friends of Florida, the past State Director of the Florida Chapter of the Nature Conservancy and served from 1981-1987 as the Secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation.

Rena Steinzor is a professor at the University of Maryland School of Law and the current President of the Center for Progressive Reform (CPR). Professor Steinzor and other CPR scholars have proposed innovative executive orders to the Obama administration with the goal of charting a new course toward national sustainability.

The Conference is free for all UF students, faculty and staff. Scholarships are available for non-UF students as well as a discounted registration fee of $45.
