Sustainability Perspectives Talk by Fae Dremock: "The Power of Story in Communicating Climate Change"
Apr 1 @ 12:15pm

The Sustainability Perspectives Series presents a talk by Fae Dremock, assistant professor of environmental studies and sciences at Ithaca College. The title of Professor Dremock's talk is, "'God’s in His Heaven— All’s Right with the World': The Power of Story in Communicating Climate Change."

What’s happening to the ecosystem as a result of global climate change is terrifying. Explaining the possibility of human extinction, and making clear the subsequent extremely urgent need to move to sustainable, regenerative lifestyles, is absolutely vital— yet the obstacles of belief, fear of change and the frenzy of fake news are formidable. Her talk will take a look at the power of story as a tool to undermine science—but also as a tool to fight back. 

This event will take place at 12:20 p.m. on Monday, April 1, 2019 in the de Witt Lecture Room (Zabriskie Hall 106) on the Wells College campus. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.

This talk is part of the Center for Sustainability and the Environment's Sustainability Perspectives Series. Wells is committed to providing access to all events; anyone needing assistance should contact Marian Brown, director of the Center for Sustainability and the Environment, as soon as possible at mbrown@wells.edu or 315.364.3304.

Events for April 8, 2019 x
Sustainability Talk by Taylor Reid: "Wild Food Foraging and the Fear of a Zombie Apocalypse"
Apr 8 @ 12:15pm

The Sustainability Perspectives Series presents "Alive or Undead? Wild Food Foraging and the Fear of a Zombie Apocalypse" with Taylor Reid, assistant professor of applied food studies at the Culinary Institute of America.

During his talk, Taylor Reid will explore the links between two recent phenomena: the meteoric rise in popularity of the zombie genre, and a surging interest in wild food foraging among survivalists, chefs, nature lovers and average Joes. It is argued that both are connected to issues of environmental alienation and fears of ecological collapse. The presentation will also provide an introduction to foraging and an overview of the health and nutritional benefits of many commonly available wild foods.

This event will take place at 12:20 p.m. on Monday, April 8, 2019 in the de Witt Lecture Room (Zabriskie Hall 106) on the Wells College campus. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.

Events for April 15, 2019 x
Sustainability Perspectives Talk by Demosthenes Maratos: "Veganism Is Environmentalism"
Apr 15 @ 12:15pm

The Sustainability Perspectives Series presents "Veganism Is Environmentalism" with Demosthenes Maratos, communications director for Molloy College's Sustainability Institute.

A growing and convincing body of evidence clearly indicates that raising animals for human consumption is the driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the planet. Via an overview of widely and lesser-known global reports and studies on the subject, this presentation will demonstrate how adopting a vegan diet and ethical framework is something all of us can do today, and something that can have far-reaching implications for the planet and all life on Earth.

This event will take place at 12:20 p.m. on Monday, April 15, 2019 in the de Witt Lecture Room (Zabriskie Hall 106) on the Wells College campus. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.

Sustainability Perspectives Talk by Steve Gabriel: "The Promise of Silvopasture"
Apr 22 @ 12:15pm

The Sustainability Perspectives Series presents "The Promimse of Silvopasture" with Steve Gabriel, farmer, author, and extension specialist for the Cornell Small Farms Program.

Humans' relationship to animals has a long and storied past, yet modern agriculture has sought to separate forest and field, animal and pasture. The agroforestry practice of silvopasture combines trees, animals and forages in a symbiotic and dynamic ecosystem. Steve will discuss the potential for this innovative farming practice that ranks among the best for addressing a changing climate.

This event will take place at 12:20 p.m. on Monday, April 22, 2019 in the de Witt Lecture Room (Zabriskie Hall 106) on the Wells College campus. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.
