Common Read speakers and film viewing set for Oct. 22
Penn State Altoona’s celebration of its first-year “common read” experience continues with a special slate of activities scheduled for Tuesday, October 22, 2013 in the Edith Davis Eve Chapel. The college’s “Common Read” initiative focuses on Colin Beavan’s book No Impact Man. For more information about the book and “common read” initiative, visit www.altoona.psu.edu/commonread.
The events on October 22 will kick off at 4 p.m. with two guest speakers. Dr. Susannah Barsom of the Penn State’s Sustainability Institute, and the coordinator of the University’s Sustainability Leadership minor, will talk about how Beavan’s book ties in with the University’s initiatives to promote sustainability and integrate it into all functions of the university. Professor Andy Lau, associate professor in the School of Engineering Design, coordinator of the College of Engineering’s first-year seminars, and formerly Associate Director of the Center for Sustainability will speak about his experiences teaching the book and the importance of learning about sustainability issues for budding (and working) engineers.
Following the talk and a break for socializing, at 5:15 p.m. Penn State Altoona’s EcoAction club and Sustainability Council will co-sponsor a screening of the film version of No Impact Man. The film features Beavan himself and the family he dragged along (at times not altogether willingly) on his “no impact” experiment. Following the film, representatives of EcoAction and the Sustainability Council will lead a discussion about Beavan’s experiment focused on things we can all try to do in order to become “reduced impact” members of our communities.
