Dear Colleagues and Friends,
This Wednesday (4/20), noon eastern, join our national webinar, with Bill McKibben and Nike’s Director of Stakeholder Mobilization, Sarah Severn. The focus of this National Climate Seminar Earth Week conversation will be on “Why We Fight”. Facing challenging politics, and relentless momentum behind global warming, where do we find the continuing inspiration and courage to fight for the transformative changes in government, and in business, that must occur in the coming years?
To join the webinar, head to http://bard.acrobat.com/cep, and log in as a guest. To get audio for the webinar (and for audio only), you’ll still need to dial into 1-712-432-3100; Conference Code: 253385.
Join us for this engaging discussion. Send advance questions for Sarah and Bill to firstname.lastname@example.org and follow us on during the call!
Our C2C Earth weeks dialogs are off to a great start. Students in MN from St. Johns and St. Benedicts, Macalaster, and Century College talked with Senator Franken’s (D-MN) office; and from UCF and Rollins with Senator Nelson’s (D-FL). University of Colorado students dialoged with staff from both Senator Bennett (D-CO) and Senator Udall (D-CO). And Congressman Hanna (R-NY) talked one-on-one with students from Hamilton College. We have a number of more dialogs lined up: see if your state or district is listed below!
Each of the video dialogs below can accommodate up to six different college or university audiences. None of the sessions are full yet. So help organize your college to participate. All you need is a room, a laptop with a webcam, and a projector. If you want to talk to political leadership about global warming, here is your chance.
