Two Lutes fundraising for ACS U.N. Climate Change conference in Marrakech

Posted by: Date: September 16, 2016

Current Lute Maddie Smith (’17) and recent alumna Alice Henderson (’16) have been selected for an amazing opportunity this Fall.   They are 2 of 8 students selected nationwide (and the only ones from the West Coast) to be delegates representing the American Chemical Society (ACS) at this year’s U.N. Conference of Parties (COP 22) of the UNFCCC in Marrakech, Morocco (November 2016).

Click on the link below to learn all about their plans to experience climate change policymaking on the global stage and then share what they learn with our communities.  Maddie and Alice need to raise funds to help cover their travel expenses associated with the program given its rather distant location this year.  If you’re able to help out with a (tax-deductible) donation or spread the word further, let’s get them to Morocco for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
