Climate Reality Corps 24 Hours of Reality
There is a newly formed Michigan Tech Chapter of the Climate Reality Campus Corps. They have created an introductory video that you can easily share through your course Canvas pages. They are hosting a virtual event at 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 10 as part of the 24 Hours of Reality national event.
The Climate Reality Project has branches on every continent except Antarctica, more than 150 community chapters in cities and towns across the U.S. and more than 30 campus corps chapters on college campuses.
We are an official Campus Corps Chapter through Climate Reality and are working on becoming a registered student organization through Michigan Tech. We strive to educate the MTU community on the climate crisis and have a long-term goal of urging Michigan Tech to commit to 100% renewable electricity in addition to other campaigns related to climate action.
In an event called "24 Hours of Reality: Countdown to the Future," hundreds of Climate Reality Leaders around the world will give presentations on the climate crisis between 4 p.m. (EDT) on Saturday, Oct.10 and 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 11.
Kendra Lachcik, a trained Climate Reality leader will give an hour-long virtual presentation over Zoom here at Michigan Tech at 6 p.m. (EDT) on Oct. 10.
She will explain the science behind climate change, its impacts, the solutions, and how Michigan Tech fits into the bigger picture. The presentation is open to all Michigan Tech students, faculty, and staff as well as community members.
