BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY STUDENTS ARE PLANNING TO HOLD A SERIES OF WORKSHOPS AS PART OF WHAT’S BILLED AS A “CLIMATE CRISIS TEACH-IN.”

ORGANIZERS SAY THE PROGRAM IS BEING PRESENTED BY UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS WHO REPRESENT DIVERSE ORGANIZATIONS.

FIVE WORKSHOP EVENTS HAVE BEEN SCHEDULED FOR NEXT WEEK.

ONE WORKSHOP WILL FOCUS ON THE ENVIRONMENTAL HISTORY OF BROOME COUNTY. THE DISCUSSION IS TO REVIEW WHAT’S HAPPENED IN THE REGION FROM COLONIZATION THROUGH THE PRESENT. IT ALSO WILL ENVISION DIFFERENT FUTURES FOR BINGHAMTON.

ANOTHER WORKSHOP WILL EXAMINE STEPS THAT MIGHT BE TAKEN TO ADDRESS VARIOUS ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGES.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS CAUSED BY AGRICULTURE ALSO WILL BE EXPLORED IN ONE OF THE PLANNED DISCUSSIONS.

THE CLIMATE WORKSHOPS WILL BE PRESENTED AT THE HINMAN COMMONS AND THE FOOD CO-OP ON THE BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY VESTAL CAMPUS.
