FOCUS THE NATION: a fun-filled Thursday plus a party on Friday

Maybe you’ve seen the flyers sprinkled around campus. Or maybe you haven’t…because we’re postering tomorrow. Whatever. Whether or not you know about it, FOCUS THE NATION is happening!

Brought to you by EON, the Environmental Studies Program, Long Lane Farm, the Sustainability Advisory Committee, and the Feet to the Fire Project (whoa, lots of links), Focus the Nation is a teach-in day about climate change solutions. The day includes many amazing things like discussions in your classes (hopefully), a keynote speaker, a bunch of panels on the different facets of climate change (such as policy responses, corporate and institutional responses, and social justice) as well as a circus. Yes, a circus. Look for some more details later in the week…

What: Focus the Nation
When: Thursday, January 31st, ALL DAY LOOONG
Where: see the nifty schedule for all the day’s events

Okay, the other thing I wanted to say is that we’re having a PARTY PARTY PARTY (called Hot Spot) at Psi U on Friday (which would be February 1st). Here comes my cheesy line that I’m really proud of: climate change is real…and while not all locations on earth will experience warming, I guarantee that temperatures in Psi U are going to be on the rise this Friday (it actually does get hot in there sometimes, right?). Tickets go on sale TOMORROW in Usdan and will be available for cheaper outside of Focus the Nation events.

The lineup:
10:00 DJ HARRISON SCHAAF
11:30 THE EBB AND THE FLOW
12:30 THE KINKY SPIGOTS

Tickets are:
$ 2 for FTN event attendees
$3 in advance
$4 at the door

Proceeds go to Oxfam America and Youth Ministries for Peace and Justice! Fun fact (kindof): Chris McCandless donated all his savings to Oxfam before he went on his adventure…into the wild. Alllllrighty.

What: Hot Spot Partay
Where: Psi U
When: 10 pm on Friday, Feb. 1st
Entry Fee: $2-$4

Edit: I definitely didn’t see the line in the post below mine urging you not to think about climate change tomorrow night…haha.

    it is utterly hypocritical to be pretentiously environment-conscious by theming everything “environmental”. the party is what you care more about. are you gonna change the environment? or the world? for the better? shame on you, wesleyan!
