Dave Pribulka, the township manager of Ferguson Township, in Centre County, Pennsylvania, will present a lecture about using municipal sustainability initiatives to combat climate change at Delaware Valley University on Thursday, April 19. The talk will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Life Sciences Building auditorium. All are welcome, and there is no cost to attend. Guests do not need to register in advance.  

Pribulka will speak about how when sustainability initiatives are adopted at the local level by municipalities and other local government bodies; these efforts can compound and collectively come together to combat global sustainability issues.

As Ferguson Township Manager, Pribulka is involved in local sustainability projects. Pribulka has a bachelor’s in psychology from Moravian College and a master’s in public administration from Kutztown University.

The presentation is being sponsored by the University’s One Health Working Group and DelVal’s Master in Public Policy program. One Health is a multi-disciplinary approach that works locally, regionally, nationally and globally to attain optimal well-being for people and society, the environment and plants, and animals. Together, the three major components make up the One Health triad, and the well-being of each is inextricably linked to the others in the triad.
