In the overwhelming crush of media about the COVID 19 pandemic we don’t want to lose sight of the profound importance of the environment.
#OWUENVS is a collective effort to push environmental news and ideas and advocacy and creative efforts out through social media and other media by students, faculty, and staff in the Environment & Sustainability Program at Ohio Wesleyan University.
Find or create relevant stuff. Anything having to do with the environment anywhere. Links, ideas, videos, maps, photos, music, data, artwork, etc. Focus on the stuff you care about.
Put it out there: use the hashtag or tag #OWUENVS so we can track the effort. Focus on the media you use. On social media, video sites, music sites, whatever. Be creative.
Please let Meg Edwards or John Krygier or Laurie Anderson know if you have any questions, ideas, or suggestions.
This effort is what we make it. It keeps us connected, and it matters.
