At Issue: Sustainability
Worms, willows, energy costs, and global warming. During spring semester, the SLC community dug into the issue of climate change, discussing its scientific, political, and economic implications and taking practical steps to reduce the College’s carbon footprint, one CFL at a time.
Focus the Nation
Faced by the growing threat of global warming, Sarah Lawrence students are banding together to press for change—both on campus and in the greater community. Among them is Vrinda Manglik ’08, who helped organize the daylong Focus the Nation teach-in in January, part of a national effort that involved more than 1,700 college campuses. Manglik sees climate change as the biggest issue facing young people today. “Our generation has to face this head-on,” says Manglik. “We had a great day in January. The trick is to keep the momentum going.”
