In April of 2018, CJC contributed to the hosting of a People’s Climate Week. Our group was most involved with:
- Screening “Hands On,” a documentary…. in the Cornell Cinema. We were honored that the director and producer of the film joined for a remote Q & A session after the film.
- Presenting a panel on climate-related displacement which spotlighted perspectives from students enrolled at the University of Puerto Rico and temporarily hosted at Cornell in the wake of Hurricane Maria.
- Collecting community contributions to a time capsule which will be stored in the library Annex until 2035, the year at which our campus is supposed to be carbon neutral. We were grateful that the University Vice President, Mr. Ryan Lombardi attended our dedication ceremony.
