CaRDI’s Community and Economic Vitality Award

The 2011 CaRDI Community and Economic Vitality Award will be presented on October 18 in conjunction with a seminar entitled, “How will rural areas contribute to America’s energy transitions?”.

According to the press release by Cornell’s Community and Regional Development Institute (CaRDI), this award is being present to the Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Marcellus Shale Team. The team of nine has two members of the Department of Natural resources: Rich Stedman, Associate Professor, and Jeffrey Jacquet, Ph.D. candidate.

The team was formed in 2008 and “represents a diversity of disciplines and perspectives within a framework of cooperation and collaboration to support informed decision making around the complexity of issues associated with Marcellus Shale development.”
