LSC Climate Change Assembly (CCA) Group-First Year Update

The Lyndon State College Climate Change Assembly (CCA) group wrapped up a productive first year with a presentation at Lyndon Institute. Lauriana Gaudet and Haley Craig talked to juniors and seniors about the science of climate change and had a great conversation including ideas for mitigation. During the 2014-15 academic year, the CCA group met seven times to discuss the science of climate change, to practice assembly presentations, and to discuss ideas for future assemblies.
