First EON Meeting of the Semester

Save the Earth!

From your brand new EON coordinators Aletta Brady ’15, Nina Gerona ’15, Kate Gibble ’15 and Corey Guilmette ’13:

We are excited to announce that EON’s first meeting of the semester will be held this Friday, February 1st from 1-2PM in 41 Wyllys Room 114. That’s right, we’re back and ready for action.

EON (Environmental Organizers Network) is Wesleyan’s umbrella environmental group that helps organize environmental groups on campus to further promote their ideas. Our agenda for this meeting will be to introduce ourselves and give these various groups an opportunity to introduce themselves and their agendas for the upcoming year. If you want to get involved this is a great space to connect with other people who are interested in many different types of sustainability and Earth related issues. Also on the agenda will be a potential trip to Washington DC during the weekend of February 17th for a protest against the keystone pipeline.

This will also be an opportunity to bring up any relevant environmental issues that you see on campus and discuss a way to organize around them.

What: Environmental Organizers Network’s 1st meeting of the semester
Where: 41 Wyllys, room 114
When: This Friday from 1-2pm
