SUSTAINABILITY OFFICE HOURS
12PM - 1:30PM | Student Sustainability Room - Robinson (Robo) 106
  • Join a rotating cast of Sustainability staff members in Robo for some delicious home-baked goods and riveting conversation. Been mulling over an exciting idea for sustainability on campus you'd like to run by us? Just want to hang out in between classes? All are welcome, whether you're a sustainability stalwart or new to the susty community.


ENERGY JUSTICE FROM BELOW
12 - 1PM | Online
  • In this talk, Azucena Castro will address how those imaginaries are formed and sustained by hegemonic discourses but also challenged by local forms of art and activism (artivisms) that demand energy justice in the context of the energy transition.

  • While wind and water energy have been portrayed as the solution to the climate crisis, there are many conflicts arising in regard to Eolic parks and hydroelectric dams all over Latin America. Castro will draw insights from two case studies on renewable energy forms in Latin America: La Guajira in Colombia, designated as “the epicenter of Colombia’s energy transition” for Eolic Energy, and the Argentinian Patagonia, viewed as “Patagonia-energy” for the installation hydroelectric plants.
