The Human Element: A photographer's journey in the Anthropocene

SEEC invites you to join us for our semiannual SEEC Seminar Series followed by a beer & wine reception. Our inaugural speaker will be James Balog: acclaimed photographer featured in Chasing Ice, scientist, adventurer & President and Founder of the Colorado-based Extreme Ice Survey and Earth Vision Institute.

You must register in advance in order to attend.

Located on the University of Colorado’s East Campus in Boulder, the university’s new Sustainability, Energy and Environment Community (SEEC) brings together more than a dozen programs and industry partners under one roof. SEEC is home to some of the best minds in environmental and sustainability research at CU and in federal labs.

A new, LEED-certified building houses shared labs featuring a new generation of analytical instruments and synthesis capabilities not available elsewhere on CU’s campus. An adjoining 290,000 square-foot space has been refurbished for teaching, programs, collaborative work, and community connections. The complex is designed to generate interaction and collaboration, fostering chance encounters that can generate sparks of discovery.
