On Wednesday, October 19, students and staff were inspired to BE THE CHANGE with stirring images, interactive musical interludes, and energy from bikes–thanks to JoeyFineRhyme.
The presentation was powered by our feet, by pedaling an energy bike connected to the sounds system. Joey shared with us some of the basics behind climate change, its causes, and its effects. He also covered our waste generation as a country and as a world, the way we manage it, and solutions for how we can help to stop these harmful trends in our behavior.
By connecting some of Oakton’s practices (like solar panels on the Lee Center, our new Environmental Studies Concentration, and our Bottled Water Ban) to these issues, he inspired each of us to BE THE CHANGE here on campus and in our personal lives. Check out part of his performance here!
