Manchester, N.H. (November 5, 2010) - Southern New Hampshire University's Papoutsy Lecture Series in Environmental Ethics and Social Responsibility will host Ray Sirois on Thursday, Nov. 11, at 6:30 p.m. in the Dining Center Banquet Hall with a reception to follow. Sirois is one of 3,000 presenters trained by Al Gore's Climate Project. Like many others, he was motivated after watching Gore's documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" to become more environmentally aware.

The Climate Project's goal is to educate the public about the dangerous changes that are taking place in our environment. The presentations given by The Climate Project shows how and why our world is changing and what individuals can do on a small scale to help.

“Those of us who are in the know have a big job ahead of us to get everybody else in the know," Sirois said.

The Papoutsy Lecture Series in Environmental Ethics and Social Responsibility was created to fulfill a goal of the present Chair to promote an environmental ethic on SNHU's campus and across the community to help move us towards a sustainable future.  Over the next two years, the Series will host speakers whose lives and work extend the traditional boundaries of ethics by examining the role of humans in the environment with the hope of finding socially responsible ways to improve this relationship.
