At the end of June, five students in Cascadia’s Bachelor of Applied Science in Sustainable Practices program, along with sustainability professor Abigail Lynam, PhD., attended Climate Reality training featuring former Vice President Al Gore.
The Climate Reality Project was founded by Gore in 2011, and seeks to train leaders who can take information and advocacy back to their communities all over the world.
The Climate Reality Project aligns with the interests and abilities of many of our BAS in Sustainable Practices students who are developing skills to plan and implement sustainable approaches to how we live and work. For example, Andre Turner (far left), is planning to complete his senior capstone project reducing plastics on campus in a way that doesn’t negatively impact revenues for our food and beverage vendors.
The next BAS in Sustainable Practices cohort starts this fall. Apply Today!
