Our class, Society and Climate Change is a course designed to shift our thinking from the scientific way that the climate is discussed in our society to a much more emotional context that will truly energize is to make change. This bench project came as a result of our understanding that there is a disconnect between one another as people and if we cannot connect with one another then we cannot connect with the Earth. Our campus did not have any outdoor benches that faced one another. So, we decided that we would make two benches and deliver them to President Tom Katsouleas as a welcome gift and as gratitude for making a statement about his commitment to helping the climate. We split up into three groups, networking, promoting, and building to ultimately achieve the creation of our beautiful benches. Our hope for the future is that our two benches, which we call the Climate Conversation Corner will facilitate deep connections with one another as students as well as with our environment. .
