STEVENS POINT – “What causes people to become environmentally conscious?”A panel of speakers will address this question and start a discussion about local to global changes required by impacts of a warming world.
“Earth is changing. What about us?” is a free event open to the public on Oct. 28, 7-9 p.m., in the Laird Room of the Dreyfus University Center, UW-Stevens Point.
These panelists will share diverse perspectives: Dr. Mark Ferguson, environmental psychologist, College of Letters and Science; Hailey Johnson, UWSP senior and member of 350 Stevens Point; Dr. Diane Humphey Lueck, senior lecturer, College of Natural Resources; and Daniel Crowsee Thomas, member of the Oneida Nation.

“Climate change is a problem that involves all of humankind. We invite all types of people to discuss the challenges and possible solutions. We welcome students and faculty in all disciplines and community members of all ages,” says Molly McGuire, president of 350 Stevens Point, a student organization sponsoring the public forum.
