The Yale Club of the Suncoast is delighted to welcome Professor Culhane, Director of Programs in Climate Mitigation and Adaptation as our featured speaker at our April 12th luncheon. Dr. T.H. Culhane is an Associate Professor at the Patel College of Global Sustainability at the University of South Florida. He is the Director of the Climate Change concentration and teaches courses in the Food and Climate concentrations. He is also the co-founding director of the not-for-profit educational corporation “Solar CITIES Inc.” which helps community stakeholders solve urban ecology and development issues surrounding waste-water, solid waste, food security and decentralized clean energy production. Culhane got his Ph.D. from UCLA in Urban Planning, living with and working on solar energy and waste management projects with the trash recycling communities of Cairo Egypt, and his Master’s in Regional and International Development working on urban agroforestry issues in Guatemala. His undergraduate work at Harvard included a year in the primary rainforests of Borneo, working on community ecology issues with hunter-gatherer tribes. His mission is to empower communities to regain ecological self-sufficiency and economic security through regenerative systems integration, believing that we have all the puzzle pieces to make thriving societies, and just need to come together and put them together.
