The first session of a three-part open discussion on climate disruption as it relates to teaching, learning and personal agency will be Friday, Sept. 18 from 12:30-1:45 p.m. at Cape Cod Lounge in the Student Union.
Called “Talking Truth: Finding Your Voice around the Climate Crisis,” the program has no prerequisites or implied commitments. The mission is to honestly discuss and collaborate on how we respond to the global challenge that looms before us. What are the most critical questions we need to address about the planetary crisis? What sustains us, as individuals and as a community, as we stay truthful? All campus voices are welcome and needed: students, staff, librarians and faculty.
The remaining sessions will be on Fridays Oct. 16 and Nov. 13 at the same time but at a location to be determined. For a general sense of participation, please RSVP: http://doodle.com/b9isryhab7w2rhdk
The program is offered by UMass Civic Engagement and Service-Learning; the UMass Amherst Libraries, and the Department of Environmental Conservation.
