Local University Student Activists Talk About Climate Change

On Sunday, February 27th, students representing six area universities — Cincinnati State, Miami University, Mount Saint Joseph, Northern Kentucky University, Xavier University, and the University of Cincinnati (UC) — will gather on Zoom to talk about current campus efforts to address climate change.

Presented by Faith Communities Go Green in collaboration with Green Umbrella and EquaSion Collaboration, the event runs from 4 – 5:15 pm and is open to the public.

Delaney Malloy, a second-year environmental science major and biology minor, is representing UC as a student panelist. Delaney brings her experience working as a Sustainability Advocate for the university, as a research assistant on topics of youth climate justice for the Collaborative Sustainability Lab, and as a fellow at the Post Landfill Action Network to Sunday’s conversation.

She believes that student activists have unique perspectives on fighting climate change because it affects their future. Delaney says, “This is why the movement is mostly youth-led. Older generations may not have this perspective because their lives are established. We will not have that privilege if we do not solve this problem.”

Join this Sunday to hear what is on the minds of local university students working to fight climate change. This event is a special opportunity for connections to be made across different campuses in the region, to learn from each other, and to have critical conversations about local problem solving and the challenges of climate change.
