The Brueggeman Center for Dialogue

Environment and Sustainability

There is perhaps no more important issue that faces us as a community, a nation or a world than climate change. The Brueggeman Center is involved in work in our community and around the world. In keeping with our belief that the real work is local, even when we work globally we work with local communities.

Dr. Buchanan continues to be involved in a project in Colombia which uses solar technology to give subsistence communities control over power, water and refrigeration to use as a foundation for sustainable economic development.

We are also involved in a global network working on biodiversity. See:
