In order to raise awareness about environmental issues on Wesleyan’s campus, and to make environmentalism more of a priority of the student body, Matilda Ostow, Lizzy Elliott and I have planned Radical Inhabitation. This action, which consists of a workshop and sleep-out, and culminates in a human banner, strives to connect environmental groups on campus and to expand dialogue about environmental issues. We invite anyone and everyone to participate in this event – join us on Foss on Wednesday April 27th at 7pm.
Re-envision our relationship to green spaces on campus. Climate change is disrupting our world, DISRUPT one night of your life by participating in:
*Workshop* – An evening of environmental exchange and collaboration
*Sleep Out* – Occupying Foss to radicalize the way we inhabit our campus
*Human Banner* – Use our bodies to send a message to the student body
– Come fed
– Bring sleeping bag/pad (or borrow a friend’s)
– Only experience necessary: being a human on planet earth.
Let’s create a collective attitude of environmental awareness and action!
