Alumni Group Explores Climate Change
Oberlin's Environmental Education Alumni Association (OEEAA) will sponsor a summer college in June titled "Climate Justice: What Is Oberlin College's Role in Climate Change?" The workshop begins Friday, June 13, with Oberlin faculty and alumni addressing the topic "Climate, Life, and Human Connections."

An evening presentation on "Heat-Trapping Gases: An Oberlin Opportunity?" will be delivered by renowned energy expert Amory Lovins, CEO of the Rocky Mountain Institute, who was lauded by Newsweek as "one of the Western world's most influential energy thinkers."

Sessions will continue Saturday, June 14, with a series of break-out discussions with OC faculty and administrators, and will conclude Sunday afternoon with a debriefing presentation. The cost for the event is $100, which includes two dinners and overnight accommodations at Baldwin Cottage.

For registration information and a complete schedule of events, see www.oberlin.edu/envs/oeeaa or contact the Alumni Association at (440) 775-8575.
