Get Up! Get Out! Get Green!

350 is more than just a number. It is the level of co2 in the atmosphere scientists say is safe for our planet. Currently, we are at 388. On October 24th the students of Conserve School will be part of what is being billed as the largest climate change event in history. In over 4200 places around the globe in 177 countries, including Conserve School, people will gather to raise awareness about the need to lower our carbon emissions. The students of our Advanced Topics: Environmental Communications course have organized an informational walk-a-thon complete with information stations on how you can help. The “Get Up! Get Out! Get Green!” walk-a-thon runs (or walks) from 3-5pm. At 7pm we have a special speaker. Arctic explorer Eric Larsen will be on campus to speak of his historic attempt to become the first person in history to reach both poles and the summit of Mt. Everest in one year, all to highlight the impact of global warming on the world’s extreme climates. Following the program, a group photos in the shape of 350 (the symbol of the movement) will be taken in the Gathering Space. Come support the students of Conserve as they “Get Up! Get Out! Get Green!” For more information, go to www.350.org.
