Two speakers at a Rapid City conference on Friday say sustainability is a concept born of necessity. As the planet's population grows, its resources are strained, and new practices have to be developed to keep the Earth and its inhabitants healthy. These local professors say intellectual diversity is the key to working out solutions. SDPB's Victoria Wicks reports on this conference sponsored by the Rapid City Sustainability Committee, a 10-member citizen group appointed by the city to explore environmental sustainability.
