Our Civic Responsibility: Reflecting on the People’s Climate March

Alex Sclafani '18 and Madison Sabol '18

What does it mean to be an engaged citizen? How are Dartmouth students acting upon this role? In these tumultuous political times, it is more important than ever to be informed and active in representing environmental and social justice interests. In this talk, Madison and Alex will reflect on their experience at the People’s Climate March in DC on April 29 in respect to their background as environmental studies majors. In the words of Terry Tempest Williams, “Action is the antidote to despair.” Choosing to grow into our civic responsibilities may take us out of our comfort zone, but is essential for our personal journeys as agents of change.

Sponsored by the Porter Family Fund for Sustainability in the Curriculum and the Environmental Studies Program.
