Dear Colleagues, 

Welcome to Climate Action Day 2018, Exeter’s fourth annual day devoted to climate education for our community! The Committee is so excited about this year’s lineup of events and workshops, which we hope you will peruse as you contemplate what draws you in.

We hope the day grounds you in an awareness of our community’s natural resources and campus systems, that you leave the day having thought about where your food comes from, where we source the energy that powers our campus, and where your waste goes when you compost, recycle, or throw it “away”.

We hope you encounter some amazing student environmental work happening on campus, and so we are offering the following workshops and events designed and facilitated entirely by students: The Exeter Exchange workshop; an E-proctor Hydroponics workshop; a Divest Exeter! workshop; performances by the Concert Choir featuring Eric Sinclair and Democracy of Sound (exeter); The Three Ecologies, a community film festival hosted by the Lamont Gallery featuring original short films by students and faculty as well as performances by Art and Activism club, Exeteras, and PEADS.


 We hope every community member will benefit from exposure to baseline climate data presented in the morning by renowned UNH climatologist Dr. Cameron Wake. 

 Finally, given the frame of our community’s work this year on diversity and inclusion, we hope to reinforce the work of OMSA and the MLK Day Committee and the Trustee Vision Statement on Diversity and Inclusion by emphasizing the intersections between social and environmental justice. This year’s Keynote Address will be given by Vernice Miller-Travis, who works at precisely this confluence.

We encourage you to scan the rest of the workshop slate, which contains an array of visiting speakers, scholars, and activists as well as myriad opportunities to head outside and get your hands dirty doing helpful environmental field work.

Our final hope: that you engage deeply and celebrate together this place we call home. 

Sincerely, the Climate Action Day Planning Committee
