Climate Change Presentation: Some Inconvenient Truths

Thursday Mar 29, 2007 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Location: RCB 8100

Join Andrea Reimer (Executive Director of The Wilderness Committee) for a compelling and insightful look at the facts behind global warming and how we can all take action. Brought to you by SFPIRG's newest group on campus, the Climate Change Action Group.

Tuesday March 29, 3:00 pm, RCB 8100, right off the northwest corner of the AQ.

Andrea Reimer joined the Wilderness Committee in 1992 and over the years has worked in every department within the organization, making her a natural choice for the role of executive director when the position opened up in January of 2002. Andrea has a diverse background in community development, social justice and the environmental movement, and is a passionate grassroots organizer. Andrea has recently received training from Al Gore about how to deliver his presentation about global warming, featured in the Oscar-winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth. She now shares that message as often as possible.

SFPIRG's Climate Change Action Group was formed in the spring of 2007. Our work focuses on raising awareness and involvement around the issue of global warming within the SFU community, and bringing about change on campus. We're also striving to build connections with off-campus organizations that have similar goals, to imbed SFU within a network of organizations that push for action on global warming. We always welcome new members, so feel free to come out, get informed, and get involved!
