UPCOMING ACTIVITIES:

November 14 @ 11:00 a.m. in the Hearthside Lounge
In conjunction with the Sustainable Learning Community and
Native American Heritage Month, there will be a screening of the
movie POWER PATHS. Admission is Free!

Picture of Power Paths DVD

Power Paths is an inspiring documentary about how Native American communities are creating new ways to produce clean power as the Tribes attempt to restore lands devastated from the impacts of coal mining. Working together, Hopi, Navajo and environmental organizations force the closure of a major polluting coal plant in Nevada. Many Tribes are now taking the lead by constructing large wind turbine projects on their own lands. (85 minutes)


 

Sustainable Learning Logo

The Center is pleased to announce that the theme for the
2013-14 Sustainable Learning Community will be:

THE HUMAN FACTOR

 

Faculty and Staff will be collaborating over the next few months to develop a resource list of books, videos, websites and more that will cover various subtopics that fit our theme. A few of the topics already identified include:

  • Personal Sustainability
  • Influencing Human Behavior/Interaction with the Environment
  • Environmental Racism

Have some thoughts you'd like to share about other potential subtopics to including? Resources or information to share? Please contact Mia Casey, Sustainability Coordinator at caseymia@fhda.edu.

More information will be posted soon, along with possible collaborative project ideas, and of course, our resource list!
