Hello! Care about issues like global warming, environmental justice, or solar panels?
Wanna know what people around campus are doing about it?
Do you like FOOD?...
Tomorrow during dinner, Nov. 13th, 6:00 - 7:00 PM, the Earlham Environmental Action Coalition (EEAC) is planning to host a potluck dinner event in the Env. Studies Office this Sunday. We'll have food while talking about what's happening on Earldom fora variety of environmental issues. Get some friends, buy a bag of chips, and come over to eat, listen, and learn!
Do you care about the environment, but aren't sure where to start? Had an idea already, but not the support needed to see it through?
Then come to EEAC's Interest Meeting! EEAC - Earlham Environmental Action Coalition - is a group that aims to foster student's ideas into a reality, and create positive environmental actions of all kinds.
For our first meeting, we'll be brainstorming ideas for the semester, so whatever your passion, whether it's conservation, education, energy ...efficiency, food justice, water rights, or something more!
So no matter who you are - young or old, shy or outgoing, squirrel or human - if you're interested, come to the new Sustainability Office @ 2nd Floor Dennis, this Wednesday, 8/31, at 7 pm!
Come bike to a local apple orchard with EEAC and the EC Bike Co-op! This is an interstate journey: Wesler Orchard is a pleasant 8.5 mile ride into Ohio. We'll pick our own apples, have a jolly good time at the orchard, and (hopefully) be back to Earlham by mid-afternoon.
Bring yo bikes, helmets, and $$$ for apples!
*** There will be one or two cars accompanying us on this trip. If you're dying to go but you can't bike, please comment that you would like a ride and we'll do our best to arrange ride space!
Earlham's back campus is beautiful, so let's spend an hour showing it some love! Because it's a lot nicer hanging out in the woods when there isn't lots of trash.
Meet us behind Stout Meetinghouse at 2pm on Saturday to grab a trash bag and gloves (and snacks)!
Co-hosted by EEAC and Animal House....
(Note: This event will not conflict with any other events planned for back-campus on Saturday afternoon, and we will send a runner to circle-up if needed).
No EEAC meeting tonight - instead, we're encouraging friends to go to the peace vigil for Syria being organized on the Heart, if you feel led.
Are you interested in getting involved with the Earlham College REInvestment Campaign? Great news, there's an intro meeting tomorrow!
If you've always wanted to get involved with REInvestment, we're having a meeting tomorrow just for you! This will be an intro to the campaign, where we'll be ...answering questions such as:
- What is divestment?
- Why divest fossil fuels?
- How are we going to convince EC?
- How can people get involved in this awesome campaign?
REInvestment has a number of different working groups with different levels of commitment, so if you want to help out with the campaign, we'll find a way for you to plug in!
EEAC at the involvement fair!
We're excited to meet see all those new faces again at our first meeting of the year, TONIGHT 8/27 @9PM at Gurney House! Come one come all to help plan some EEAC fun and learn about the Earlham College REInvestment Campaign. There will be yummy food!
24% of Americans "would support an organization that engaged in non-violent civil disobedience against corporate or government activities that make global warming worse".
Are you among the 13% of Americans that would personally wage civil disobedience?

Any EEACers out there from NY who want to help stop fracking? Take a minute today to send a quick comment to the DEC!
Yesterday in Albany, young people from across New York called on Governor Andrew Cuomo to ban fracking.
For our generation, the stakes couldn’t be higher - it i...s the students and young people of New York who will live with the repercussions of this deadly decision.
Today is the last day to send in comments to the DEC, and Albany needs to hear a roar of comments from young people: it is our duty to protect our futures, especially when the people we put into power aren't doing it for us.
Follow this link to send a comment to the DEC, and share this photo to ask your friends to do the same.
Today it's time to do our Homework Against Fracking!
