Coalition on Climate Change (C3)
The SLU Coalition on Climate Change (C3) is a coalition founded on the idea that many groups on campus have a stake in the issue of climate change. The Coalition on Climate Change was founded in February of 2007 and has already been working with several other organizations on events concerning climate change. Through local action C3 hopes to raise awareness of climate change at SLU, help the university cut its greenhouse emissions, and coordinate events with groups from both the St. Lawrence and North Country community.
Green Torch Relay:
A 200+mile ride from Canton, NY to Albany, happened on October 28th and raised awareness of climate change and the events going on this fall with the climate movement. The ride included 20 mile legs with a total of 25 riders participating (Paul Smith's, Clarkson, SUNY Canton, and SLU were involved) in this effort to bike across the state. In particular the goal of this ride was to show widespread support for the Focus the Nation (www.focusthenation.org) teach-ins that will be happening early next year at universities across New York State, and to hand deliver hundreds of invitations to state senators and representatives in Albany.
