Global Issues to Sponsor Student Panel

The Global Issues Colloquium will host a student panel on national/international climate activism from 7-9 p.m. Sept. 6 in Magruder Hall 2001. Students who have participated in climate activism will share their experiences.

Panel Abstract:
The issue of climate change is one which affects all life on Earth, but disproportionately its effects will be felt by the youth of today. So, it is hardly surprising that student-led activism comprises an increasingly important part of climate change political engagement. This Global Issues Colloquium features a panel of student climate activists, whose political energy has been directed in different but intersecting directions. From Truman, there is Eugenia Delgado, biology graduate student and recently trained climate reality leader, and Emma Rollings, undergraduate in interdisciplinary studies, who is an active member of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby and traveled to Washington, D.C., to lobby this past June. The panel will also be joined by Mason Brobeck, undergraduate member of the MU Divestment Campaign.
