*CANCELED* Sustainability Series: Gay Nicholson
Mar 23 @ 7:00pm

*Canceled*

The climate policy battles ahead may take quite a long time; achieving a carbon tax and a subsequent redistribution of resources to assure energy democracy won't be easy. In the meantime, local communities can provide leadership toward including everyone in the transition to a clean energy economy. Gay Nicholson, founder of the Finger Lakes Climate Fund, will give a talk on the many ways that her group works to promote renewables and energy efficiency projects, while at the same time helping to strengthen our regional economies and assisting local families in need.

Sandra Steingraber, Environmental toxicologist, activist, author of “Living Downstream”

Sustainability Perspectives Series: “Climate Change and Sports”

Sandra Steingraber's presentation will explore how the climate crisis is threatening the future of sports and examines the ways in which athletes are emerging as leaders in the climate justice movement worldwide. Of particular interest: exposure to air pollution and its effects on athletic performance; the rising incidence of heat stroke in outdoor sports; and the leadership that surfers, skiers and snowboarders are playing in the fight for renewable energy. The talk will present opportunities for engagement with athletes in attendance.

Our mission is for every student to think critically, reason wisely and act humanely as they cultivate meaningful lives. On our beautiful lakeside campus, students gain the knowledge, skills and experience to create their own unique path.
