Here are some recent happenings in or related to ENVS.
It’s a persistent question: How do you prepare large populations for an emergency? Funded by a grant of more than half a million dollars from the National Science Foundation, an interdisciplinary team of Lewis & Clark faculty and students is creating a video game to educate and enlist young people in that critical process.
When Lewis & Clark undergrads choose to pay the voluntary student “green fee,” the money goes into a fund that allows the college to buy renewable energy certificates and promote sustainability. The Renewable Energy Fee Fund Committee, comprised of students, is responsible for choosing the energy certificates, and awarding grants for student projects, internships, and research.
