We hope to gather colleagues who are interested in climate action, sustainability and climate “hope.” Many of us are grappling with climate grief, what the future holds, and ways in which we can make meaningful changes. With the college’s 2030 neutrality plan in action, it would be useful to gather staff, faculty and students to discuss options to offset their carbon footprint.
All are welcome!
