BOBCATS BEYOND GAS put on a panel in Walter Hall in February where a group of outspoken and innovative members of the Athens and Southeastern Ohio community came together to discuss the future of Ohio University in terms of sustainability and climate change in the years to come.
Currently the University’s Climate Action Plan states that they plan to reach carbon neutrality by 2075, whereas all acclaimed scientists of climate change and weather patterns state that we need to drastically reduce our carbon emissions as soon as possible to avoid the worst of the imminent weather change and health of our planet declining.
Here is a video of the Future of OHIO Panel produced by Badger Johnson.
