PETOSKEY: North Central Michigan College will celebrate Earth Week April 17-23 with a variety of free and open to the public events. Earth Day EveryDay serves to honor the many people and organizations in Northern Michigan who, every day, instill the principles of Earth Day into the life of our community. Its goal is to demonstrate the educational and career opportunities that are present right here in our own community and to inspire us to take personal actions to care for the Earth every day. All events are on the Petoskey campus unless otherwise noted.
George Heartwell, 12-year mayor of Grand Rapids and Community Sustainability Coordinator at Grand Valley State University, will give a keynote presentation, “Postlude to Paris: Where Do We Go from Here?” on Thursday, April 20 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in the Library Conference Center. Mr. Heartwell will revisit the Paris Accord and will speak about what is happening in 2017 up to Earth Day. Light snacks and Q&A moderated by Kerri Finlayson, North Central instructor, follow the presentation.
All events are FREE and open to the public, but reservations are required. Please call 231-348-6613 or email [email protected] to reserve a spot.
