Post-Election Climate Dialogue

hriixqmThis really cool event is happening TODAY:

In the wake of the recent election, Climate Ambassadors and the Outhouse are hosting an open forum to discuss future directions in a political situation where federal climate legislation is likely to become stagnant. This forum is a platform to discuss potential initiatives and collaborations to develop a network of individuals interested in encouraging environmentally responsible behavior despite changes in leadership in the federal government.

We welcome any contributions and insights that folks may have on environmental activism, whether it be from personal experience, academic study or other means. This forum is open to all members of the Wesleyan and Middletown community. Here is the Facebook event.

Date: TODAY
Time: 6:30-8PM
