For the launch of the new Campion College Environmental Impact Scholarship, Dr. Sarah Abbott will lead us in a discussion and reflection on interrelations between humans, nonhumans, and the Earth. This is a talk is open to everyone from seasoned earth-conscious people to those beginning their journey of sustainability and climate change. Let’s join together to question our relationship with the planet and human-caused environmental degradation. This is a free talk but donations to our new scholarship are welcome at https://campioncollege.ca/support-campion/.
