Town’n'Gown talk at museum

The close and beneficial relationship between the city and the University of Guelph will be the subject of an upcoming talk at the Guelph Civic Museum by Maurice Nelischer, the university’s director of sustainability.
The talk, which is part of the Better Planet Lecture Series, will take place Thursday April 10 at 7 p.m.
When universities were first developed in the middle ages, they were an integral part of a city, reflecting its values and positioning the community as a national leader. Nelischer believes Guelph embodies this heritage in many ways, a news release said.
His presentation will explore the historic and contemporary connections between city and university, and will be guided by the themes of the Better Planet Project – environment, health, community and food, the release said.
Nelischer, who has lived in Guelph for more than 35 years, has taken part in many city/university projects, it said.
He has used civic projects for his students and has worked to engage his students in civic life.
Admission to the lecture is by donation. For more information, call 519-836-1221 or visit
