Climate Reality Leadership Training
MPES full-time member, Alicia Oberholzer, had the privilege of attending Al Gore’s 2017 Climate Reality Leadership Training in Pittsburgh. Attendees from all over the world learned how to effectively communicate climate change topics, a skill that is necessary to galvanize environmental action.
Zero Waste Conference
MPES full-time member, Alicia Oberholzer, and MPES minimal-time member, Audrey Garcia, traveled to Philadelphia to attend the Post Landfill Action Network’s Zero Waste Conference. They learned how several U.S. higher-education institutions have made the commitment to become zero-waste campuses. Audrey and Alicia are excited to apply this knowledge to reduce waste at UMaine.
