Campus-Wide Teach-In on Climate Change
Monday, 9/22/2014 4:30 PM-7:30 PM
Fuller Laboratories, Upper Perreault - Free and open to all.
Following the Sept. 21 People's Climate March in NYC--an event endorsed by over a 1000 organization of scientists, educators, religious leaders, trade unions, and medical professionals demanding world leaders take action to combat climate change--the community will have an opportunity to learn and listen together about the most urgent issue of our time. Faculty, staff, and student leaders will speak on the many dimensions of the climate change crisis. How much has happened already and what can we expect? As seas rise and become more acidic, species disappear, storms and drought increase, and agriculture suffers, how will we survive? What are the political, economic, technological, moral, religious, and spiritual dimensions of the crisis? Why are our political leaders doing so little to meet this challenge?
What can we do with our avoidance, fear, anger and despair? What can we do? Light refreshments will be served. Come for as long as you can. Bring your friends, your concerns, your questions.
