ALTRUISM: Environmental Climate Change Organization is preparing a webinar on Climate Change
The Environmental Climate Change Organization (E.C.C.O) is planning a Zoom webinar on climate change! The organization was co-founded by Grammar student Heather Clarke '25 and Abigail Steeves in 2019. It is a student-run organization passionate about raising awareness and making a change to help the environment.
E.C.C.O's webinar will educate the attendees on how climate change has impacted wildlife and animals, getting involved with activism, and sustainability within the fashion industry. The sessions will happen in separate breakout rooms so attendees can choose which topic they want to learn about.
The Impact of climate change on wildlife and animals: hosted by Grammar students Heather Clarke '25, Olivia Liu '25 and Maggie Wen '25
How to get involved with activism: hosted by Abigail Steeves
Sustainability and the fashion industry: hosted by Sophie Begley
After the breakout sessions, attendees will go back to the main session and listen to activists speak more about climate change and how people can help make a difference.
"These were the chosen topics because we care for animals' well-being and how the living environments are being affected. We want to increase activism recognition, and we want to boost awareness for the fashion industry," said E.C.C.O when asked about their decision to host the webinar.
E.C.C.O's Climate Change Zoom Webinar will take place on Saturday, March 27, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. AST. Stay tuned on E.C.C.O's Instagram for the Zoom link!
