by Michele Catahay

Guam - University of Guam President Dr. Robert Underwood was the guest speaker during the Guam Chamber of Commerce membership meeting today at the Hyatt Regency. Dr. Underwood is soliciting support from the private sector to help with the university's Center for Island Sustainability.

The center is focused on addressing concerns about the environment, the future of the economy as well as social and cultural concerns.  "We're going to be undergoing in this decade, I keep calling this decade, a decade of decision. This is the decade where major decisions will be made to determine the nature of our lives for the next couple of decades and so we want to make sure that as we go through that, we want to take care of our immediate surroundings," said the president.

Dr. Underwood says the center provides policy papers, and technical reports to address all these issues in an integrated way.
