Facing the Climate Situation… Together
Monday, Oct. 4, 2021
noon - 1 p.m.
DeWitt Wallace Library Suite 309
Please join us
for a discussion on “Facing the Climate Situation…Together.” The release of the most recent
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, combined with the up-close
reality of what's happening with Line 3 (and much more), has sparked many
"what are we doing?! / what can and should we all be doing?!" conversations
among Mac colleagues. It has also inspired more of those sobering, "Yup,
this is scary!" conversations that we don't necessarily often get to have
with one another.
In collaboration with the Kofi Annan Institute for Global Citizenship and the Sustainability Office, and in consultation with many colleagues on campus whose work is centrally focused on these issues, the Serie Center is eager to open a space for monthly conversation where we can process the intensity and reality of this time, think about the IPCC report (and its implications) with a variety of colleagues, or strategize together about the opportunities and responsibilities all of us have in relation to the significant and deeply-interconnected-with-so-many-other-forces climate situation we are in.
