Trinity College, Class of ’70 Reunion Discussion: Zoom Talk #4 -- “Climate Change and Trinity’s Curriculum"
From Theresa Kidd
Moderator Richard Turk (Trinity College, class of 1970) introduces Climate Change and Trinity’s Curriculum, a discussion held on Zoom on September 13, 2021, at 4pm ET. The discussion was organized by the Trinity Class of 1970 Reunion Committee as part of its 50th Reunion celebration. Appearing on camera were Christoph Geiss (Professor of Physics and Environmental Science, Trinity College), Peter Kyle (Associate Professor of Theater and Dance, Trinity College), and Mark Silk (Director, Leonard Greenberg Center for the Study of Religion in Public Life and Professor of Religion in Public Life, Trinity College). Since the overwhelming passage of the resolution in 2019 by Trinity faculty to declare a climate emergency, Trinity’s Climate Emergency Committee has worked on ways to educate students about climate change across the School’s curriculum.
In this presentation, faculty from the arts, humanities, and natural sciences will describe what and how they plan to mobilize "more resources for action-oriented climate change research and skills creation...[and increase] the delivery of environmental and sustainability education across curriculum, campus, and community outreach programs."
