Ecofeminism, Eco-Grief, and Climate Justice: A Conversation With Heidi Hutner

ecoJosh Nodiff ’19 writes in:

Come join Dr. Heidi Hutner, Associate Dean and Director of Sustainability Studies at Stony Brook University, in a conversation
about ecofeminism, eco-grief, and climate justice! A longtime environmental activist and writer, Dr. Hutner will be addressing the dangerous Algonquin Pipeline and Indian Point power plant, as well as nuclear issues, fracking, and climate justice at large. Dr. Hutner will also facilitate an interactive workshop in which students can discuss and further their own activism at Wesleyan, as well as collaborate to build an intercollegiate coalition for climate justice. The discussion and workshop are open to everybody on campus!

This event, which coincides with the 30-year anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, is sponsored by Fossil Fuel Divest, Veg Out, and the United Student/Labor Action Coalition.

First “Spring” Veg Out Tomorrow

Anna Guth ’14 just called me while I was in the shower to ask me to post this event. And it’s so important that here I am writing to let you know the deets on Veg Out:

Come and enjoy a delicious, vegetarian, and locally grown meal at Buddhist House this Saturday! We will have a mindful eating meditation at 6:30 and the main meal will begin at 7:00.

The VegOut team is very excited to be partnering with Buddhist House because we believe that mindful eating and mindfully sourcing your food are inextricably connected. Mindfully eating is bringing all of your awareness to what you’re putting in your mouth. Mindfully sourcing is focusing on local and organic food sustaining our communities and ourselves. If you can help cook at Earth House, Farm House, Out House, or Buddhist House from 12-4 p.m. tomorrow, then come on over!


Date: Saturday (TOMORROW!)
Time: 6:30 p.m.
