Barnard College News

In recognition of Climate Week NYC 2022 (September 19-23), Delaney Wellington ’23 discusses her passion for finding equitable solutions to climate change. 

Across the city and globe this week, people are taking action to bring awareness to climate change, with many students participating in walkouts. Barnard shares their commitment to enacting change, as reflected in the College’s various initiatives over the years to address sustainability.

Climate change is one of the most pressing challenges of our time. The College is preparing students to meet these challenges through a three-fold strategy.

Earth Day—Saturday, April 22—is more important than ever this year. As environmental protections are increasingly challenged or reduced, the Barnard community is enhancing sustainability efforts, working to reduce the effects of climate change, and creating scientifically based solutions to address environmental hazards.
 

With two very different approaches, environmentalist heroes Annie Leonard and Diane Pataki are out to teach us how to save the planet.
