On Wednesday, July 12, 2006, from 6:15 PM 7:15 PM, Professor Simon Levin of Princeton University will deliver the I.E. Block Community Lecture, "Individual Choices, Cooperation, and the Global Commons: Mathematical Challenges in Uniting Ecology and Socioeconomics for a Sustainable Environment." This lecture is free and open to the public.

Professor Levin's upcoming talk will explore the modeling challenges in dealing with problems associated with the interdependence of those ecosystems that form the complex web of life on this planet and the human societies in which we live.

Levin received the Kyoto Prize in 2005 from the Inamori Foundation of Japan for his honorable contributions to environmental science. The 50 million yen award (approximately $460,000) is given in recognition of lifetime achievement in the categories of basic science, advanced technology and arts and philosophy. "In proposing many methods of biological conservation and ecosystem management, Professor Levin has made fundamental contributions to environmental science," the foundation commented.

In old English law, the common (or commons) was a tract of ground shared by residents of a village, but belonging to no one. It might be grazing grounds, or the village square, but it was property held in common for the good of all. 1 Today the term "global commons" refers to the Atmosphere, Hydrosphere, Lithosphere and Biosphere that we all share and for w
