, will present Seeds of Change: The Earth Charter and Human Potential exhibition at Fairchild Martindale and Linderman Libraries from October 6-10, 2008.
An opening ceremony, including a keynote address by Steven Wisman, director of operations of the Millennium Villages Project, Millennium Promise, will be held on Oct. 6 at 6 p.m. in Linderman Library, Room 200.
