Welcome to MC²: Michigan & the Climate Crisis! Last October we organized an exciting week of climate-related events to mark the University of Michigan’s bicentennial. Our goal was to explore the existential problem of climate change and to discuss the University’s role in confronting this crisis moving forward into our next century. You can view many of the videos from our week of events here, but check out the short video below for the highlights!
UNFRACTURED April 2018!
We are continuing to organize events on campus in 2018 with a focus on how UofM can address climate change as an institution. This April we are excited to be bringing MC² speaker Sandra Steingraber back to Ann Arbor for a screening of her new documentary, UNFRACTURED. UNFRACTURED gives us a hopeful look into the grassroots movement to ban fracking in New York State. The film explores Sandra’s personal journey as a scientific advisor and activist in the campaign.
Please join us at the Michigan Theater on April 4th at 7pm for a FREE screening and Q&A with Sandra and the film’s director, Chanda Chevannes. Sandra will also be giving a public book lecture on a new edition of Rachel Carson’s famous Silent Spring, which includes an introduction by Sandra. The lecture is at April 5th 1pm in the Henderson Room at the Michigan League.
