Resources for Secular Chapel

“What Greta Thunberg Means to Me,” Sunday Nov. 10th Noon at Johnson Chapel. A gathering for Amherst College students, faculty and staff hosted by Prof. Jen Manion and Prof. Michael Kunichika and choir director, Prof. Martha Umphrey. There will be a light reception.

For inspiration, here is Greta’s speech at the UN Climate Action Summit and her #FridaysforFutureCampaign. Some varied reporting on can be found here by Robinson Meyer “Why Greta Makes Adults Uncomfortable,” from the Atlantic and “The Problem with Greta Thunberg’s Climate Activism,” by Christopher Caldwell in the New York Times.
