Student Panel on National/ International Climate Activism
Students who have participated in national and international climate activism will share their experiences. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Christine Harker, CRP, CCL from the Truman English Department.
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 State University there is Eugenia Delgado, Biology graduate student and recently trained Climate Reality Leader and Emma Rollins, undergraduate in interdisciplinary studies, who is an active member of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby and traveled to Washington DC to lobby this past June. Also we will be joined by Mizzou student, Mason Brobeck, undergraduate member of the MU Divestment Campaign. The panel will be moderated by Dr Christine Harker, CRP, CCL from the Truman English Department.
