A new podcast for The Lantern is available for listeners interested in environmental topics and sustainability. This weeks episode was created and hosted by Ris Twigg, an undergraduate student in the School of Environment and Natural Resources. Twigg is also an assistant photo editor for The Lantern. This is the fifth episode, about the upcoming event: Time For Change Week!
For the second year in a row, Time For Change Week — a collaborative effort on sustainability between student organizations, Undergraduate Student Government, Sustainability Council and other Ohio State departments — will kick-off Earth Month. With an extra emphasis on accessibility and environmental justice, student organizers Marie McConnell, president of Sustainability Council, and Vikas Munjal, director of sustainability for USG, break down what Time For Change Week is all about. From art to zoo animals, the week-long event aims to bring an awareness of environmental issues to Ohio State’s campus and connect those issues to those who typically don’t think about sustainability.
