Earth Week Teach-In takes place March 25
The public is invited to attend.
According to Michele Speitz, Ph.D., an assistant professor of English at Furman, the teach-in is “meant to be both informative and provocative. Ideally such a gathering of speakers is meant to attract attention, educate the audience, and galvanize action. The main idea is to bring our sustainability-centered work to life.”
