Sustainability Café: “Teaching Climate Change to Freshman Non-majors”

Monday, April 21 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Center for Natural Sciences, Room 112

Dr. Nancy Jacobson, assistant professor of biology, designed the Ithaca Seminar titled “Global Warming: It’s a Hot Topic,” which explored global warming and the resulting climate change through the lens of power, justice, and sustainability. The course looked at the power and limitations of science to explain current climate change and to predict what we will see in the future, and explored the concept of climate justice. Students took on the roles of scientists and policy makers in various countries to understand the global differences in the impact of climate change on them and their power to prevent or adapt to it.

“Teachable edibles” – local, organic and/or seasonal snacks – for the Spring 2014 Sustainability Café series are being sponsored by Ithaca College Dining Services whose motto is “Sustainability – Healthy – Fresh.”  Please bring your reusable mug and fill up at the nearest drinking fountain or provide your own beverage of choice.

Drink in a new way to think in the Sustainability Café.
