The Paris Climate Agreement – A New Approach for International Collaboration on Climate Change

You are invited to attend a presentation by Neil Leary, Dickinson College’s Director of the Center for Sustainability Education, on Friday, February 12, 2016, when he will discuss the Paris Climate Agreement. The lecture is scheduled from 1:00 – 3:00 pm and will take place at the United States Army Heritage and Education Center, 950 Soldiers Drive, Carlisle.
One hundred and ninety-five nations agreed to a new treaty in Paris on December 12, 2015 that takes a fundamentally different approach from past agreements for motivating international collaboration on climate change. The new approach is built upon voluntary national commitments that are not binding in international law, and rely on a transparent reporting and review process to promote compliance. Neil Leary will compare the Paris Agreement with previous climate agreements and consider whether it lays a foundation that is up to the enormous challenge of limiting climate change. He will also discuss the evidence for human caused climate change, its human and environmental consequences, the need for international and transnational cooperation, and US options and strategies.
This presentation is part of the Great Decisions discussion series sponsored by the United States Army War College. It is free and open to all military and the civilian community.

Spring into Fitness Challenge 2016

The annual Spring Into Fitness Challenge is an exercise-minutes challenge, between Dickinson College and several other local peer institutions with an additional challenge between the divisions of the college. Online registration for the challenge opens this year on Monday, February 20 and continues through February 29. The competition officially kicks off the Monday after spring break, on March 20 and continues through April 30.

Participants are asked to submit their exercise minutes online at the end of each week during the challenge. The online submission website address and other details will be provided to all employees registered for the challenge.

We hope that everyone will join the 2016 Spring Into Fitness Challenge by registering and participating with enthusiasm in spring 2016.

Mini-teams should include three-six members, and need to identify with a team name during the online registration process. Look for details on the Spring Into Fitness webpage and Vitality. Make the steps you take in the fitness challenge the first steps you take toward getting on track to a healthier you!

12 Steps to Living a Compassionate Life - Book Discussion

Presented by the Center for Service, Spirituality and Social Justice & Human Resource Services
Friday, April 22
HUB Side Rooms 201-202
Noon – 1 p.m.

In the book, Armstrong suggests the twelve steps begin with “Learn About Compassion,” and close with “Love Your Enemies.” In between, she takes up self-love, mindfulness, suffering, sympathetic joy, the limits of our knowledge of others, and “concern for everybody.” She shares concrete methods to help us cultivate and expand our capacity for compassion, and provides a reading list to encourage us to “hear one another’s narratives.” Armstrong teaches us that becoming a compassionate human being is a lifelong project and a journey filled with rewards.
Registration is required in CLIQ via the Gateway.
*Books will be ordered for those, faculty and staff, registered by February 29, 2016.

Stout Girls and Golden Eaglets: Or, Why Should We Care about the Girl Scouts of the USA?

Landis House, 12:00 p.m.
Tuesday, February 16, 2016
Dr. Amy Farrell
Stout Girls and Golden Eaglets: Or, Why Should We Care about the Girl Scouts of the USA?

In 1912, Juliette Gordon Low brought the Girl Scouts, modeled after the British Girl Guides, to the United States. A proto-feminist organization, the Girl Scouts simultaneously articulated concepts of sisterhood and democracy and delineated strict lines of segregation and hierarchy. Drawing from materials originating in the early decades of this massive organization--Girl Scout handbooks, novels, and the recruitment film The Golden Eaglet-- this talk will introduce some of Farrell’s early findings regarding the complexity of this institution, the significance of its reliance on concepts like "a helping hand" and a "friend to others," and the ways that it both reinforced and challenged discourses of gendered, classed and racialized privilege.
