Focus the Nation


Focus the Nation

While it’s still white outside, students are thinking green. A major campus initiative is expected to raise awareness on climate change. Focus The Nation is a movement that started last year. This year’s topic is “Global Warming Solutions for the First 100 Days” of the nation’s new administration. Student group Sustainable Earth is coordinating teams of students, faculty and industry professionals to hold activities at Carnegie Mellon from Feb. 4-6. For a complete list of local events, visit

Sustainable Earth President Austin Redwood and Vice President Vanessa Schweizer talk about the event in this recent podcast [16:51 .mp3].
