Rachel Carson Legacy Conference
Our Planet and Our Health - The Impact of Silent Spring after Fifty Years
Rachel Carson's book Silent Spring, published 50 years ago in 1962, brought global attention to the consequences of unrestrained use of toxic pesticides such as DDT. Among the actions taken in response to her work was a ban on DDT by the newly formed environmental Protection Agency in 1976, over a decade after Rachel Carson's death. The conference will gather participants from academic, non-government, industry, advocates and policy makers to explore the topic: "Our Planet and Our Health - The Impact of Silent Spring after Fifty Years".
