A sacred “deep time” practice session, inspired by the work of activist and Buddhist scholar Joanna Macy. In this workshop we will consider how we might act like ancestors of future generations and reinvigorate our commitment to climate justice action. The group is facilitated by Tim Beaucage, graduate advisor/teaching associate at UMass Amherst.  

The UMass Amherst Libraries host a series of interactive climate change events.

Now in its second year, the series is organized by Talking Truth: Finding Your Voice Around the Climate Crisis, a collaborative community comprised of UMass Amherst students, faculty, and staff working together to integrate the intellectual, emotional and spiritual dimensions of climate change. 

The theme of the spring 2017 series is “Living and Working with Purpose in a Time of Climate Disruption.”

All events are free and open to the public. Seating is limited, please arrive early. 

Directions:

The Campus Center is located in the middle of campus at 1 Campus Center Way. Parking is available in the Campus Center Garage.
