The Lakehead University Office of Sustainability is hosting a free student-friendly session about climate change on Wednesday, March 13th, from 2:00pm until 6:00pm. The event will take place on campus at The Study Coffeehouse. The goal of the session is to facilitate conversation about the anthropogenic disruption of climate processes and generate involvement in climate-change preparedness.
Research, Protest, Advocacy and a Movie
The opening elevator-pitch session will highlight research at Lakehead that focuses on climate change. From 2:00pm until 3:00pm, participants will describe their research and why it’s important, in three minutes or less. Attendees will then have the opportunity to ask questions.
In the second portion, Protest Pedagogy, learn how protest is an important educational tool and why it doesn’t deserve the negative connotation that many associate with the term.
Next, things get personal with some pointed information about how Lakehead University is contributing to climate destabilization through professors’ pension plan investments in fossil fuel stocks. A Lakehead student group, Fossil Free Lakehead, will make the case for Lakehead University to divest from fossil fuel stocks.
Later on, enjoy pizza and a screening of the critically acclaimed film Anthropocene: The Human Epoch.
