40th and Walnut Streets
Menu items available for purchase.

Stanley Laskowski, a teacher, lecturer, and advisor at Penn, is also the director of the Philadelphia Global Water Initiative, a regional organization dedicated to help provide basic water and sanitation services to everyone in the world. In this, the Year of Water at Penn, Laskowski will discuss the World Water Crisis. At Penn, Laskowski develops and teaches environmental management and policy courses and advises students and professors in environmental science, business, law, and medicine. For more than 30 years, Laskowski was involved in essentially all major environmental programs administrated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Mid-Atlantic office, co-managing a staff of 900 engineers, scientists and support personnel. His areas of special interest include US and global environmental management, environmental policy, and issues related to the attainment of the UN Millennium Development Goals for water and sanitation. He is a tireless supporter of various non-for-profit organizations.

Hauling science out of the lab for a night on the town, the Penn Science Café offers the Philadelphia region an opportunity to pitch questions to leading scientific experts who drop the jargon to explain their work in layman’s terms. Featuring faculty from the School of Arts and Sciences—as well as Penn’s schools of Engineering and Applied Science, Medicine and Veterinary Medicine—all Penn Science Café events are free and open to the public.
