Fall Forum 2021: "Conservation and Reverence for the Earth", with Dr. Paul Alan Cox

November 11, 2021

Thursday November 11th at 7:00 PM Mountain Time

"Reverence for the earth is taught both in scripture and in the temples. Care for the planet and compassion for the plants and animals we share it with can become an act of worship if we explicitly acknowledge the Creator and our contingency as stewards of His masterpiece. Modern revelation reaffirms our responsibilities to protect and care for the creation." - Dr. Paul Alan CoxCox Paul 1 square

We have included this link to a Google Map to help you navigate to the event. Once you arrive at BYU, the Maeser Building (321) is indicated as MSRB on the map at the bottom of this page. The building is not far from parking, but it is up a hill.

The parking right next to the Maeser Building does not open to the public until 7:00 PM. Please park in any of the areas marked in yellow on the attached map. Lot 34Y is probably the best bet, and it opens to the public after 4:00 PM.

You may also attend via Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZwoduCrqzgvHdIZznObffz59IP4z56ncIAz.

May we all be blessed for the concerns and joy we share for our beloved Earth.

Dr. Paul Alan Cox has lived in remote island villages searching for new medicines. He was awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize, sometimes known as the Nobel Prize of the Environment and was named one of TIME magazine’s eleven “Heroes of Medicine” for his discovery of a new HIV drug candidate. His conservation foundation, Seacology, has set aside over 1.5 million acres of rain forest and coral reef in 60 countries around the world.

Cox was both a Danforth Fellow and a National Science Foundation Fellow at Harvard where he received his Ph.D. He currently serves as the Executive Director of the Brain Chemistry Labs in Jackson, Wyoming, a not-for-profit research institute focused on finding new treatments for ALS and Alzheimer’s disease.
