Jan. 22: Lawrenceville Premiers Sustainability Lecture Series
On Jan. 22, Lawrenceville kicks off the first in a series of quarterly lectures on issues surrounding environmental sustainability. The premier talk, featuring by local grassroots organization C-Change Conversations, will take place in the Ambrecht Room (Noyes History Building) beginning at 6:30 p.m. The lecture is presented by Lawrenceville’s Office of Sustainability and Parents@Lawrenceville. All are invited, no tickets necessary, free of charge.
This opening talk, “The C-Change Primer,” is an award-winning educational presentation developed in consultation with scientists and energy experts. It answers the questions most American's have about climate change. This goal is to help viewers understand and evaluate the risks of climate change to them personally. It has been presented in 22 states to over 4,000 people and has been praised for its non-partisan, scientifically-based approach by groups across the political spectrum.
“We want to help people understand the latest reports about climate change, which are pretty dire. It should be the headline in every newspaper every day,” said Sam Kosoff, Lawrenceville’s Director of Sustainability. “By removing the politics from the discussion, C-Change allows us to learn what’s happening and see what we, as individuals, can do about it.”

Retired U.S. Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) spoke at Lawrenceville on Monday evening, quoting Lincoln’s first inaugural address as he encouraged students to “search "for the better angels of our nature” during this time of political diverseness.
