Cooper Union x Climate Week
POSTED ON: November 13, 2019
The urgency of climate change —and how to halt it—was the subject of a week of excellent programming brought to the Cooper community by Alisa Petrosova A'21 and Sophie Schneider ME'20. Working with Professor Amanda Simson of the chemical engineering department, the two students worked for six months to create a week that included renowned speakers such as Naomi Klein and Bill McKibben; a student exhibition; participation in the international climate strikes on September 20; and other events. Alisa and Sophie designed the week to be as inclusive as possible so that students and faculty from all three schools would be represented.
See some of the highlights in the video above and see this gallery of photographs from the exhibition, "Tomorrow (doesn't look so good) Today" that drew on student work related to climate change.
