First meeting is Wednesday, September 3, 2014 at 1 p.m. in W186.
The mission of the Student Climate & Conservation Congress (Sc3) is to empower outstanding student environmental leaders with the skills, knowledge, and tools necessary to address natural resource conservation and climate change challenges, and better serve Mountain View College and DCCCD.
Sc3 recognizes and empowers the next generation of conservationists and supports them in becoming global leaders in their own communities. Sc3 members learn from hands-on projects, grow to understand environmental, social and economic interconnections, and assist in implementing Mountain View College's Framework for Climate Action.
The Congress trains students in general leadership, sustainable design, and organizational skills. Students will also be challenged to develop their presentation skills, team building, group problem solving and public speaking skills.
Students will serve on one of six sub-committees in order to develop implementation plans for MVC's Framework for Climate Action:
- Waste & Recycling
- Other Campus Practices
The Sc3 students will host three sustainability speakers per semester, as part of the Sustainability Speaker Series, and will meet almost every Wednesday at 1 p.m. in W186.Contact for more information:Lori De La Cruz
