As a 2010 Compton Mentor Fellow, Angela Evancie is using web-based, multimedia narrative journalism to introduce new perspectives and people into the environmental conversation in the Champlain Valley. Her work focuses on the stories of people who do not consider themselves part of the “green movement” but whose perspectives on environmental issues are valuable nonetheless. In her “Greening the Afterlife” series of audio slideshows for Champlain Sounding, Evancie tells the stories of families and individuals who are finding alternatives to the funeral industry and taking burials back to the land.
Join Angela Evancie at 6:00pm on Wednesday, October 20, 2010 in McCardell Bicentennial Hall 104 to learn more about her experience as a Compton Mentor Fellow. She will also be talking about the application process for the fellowship to any interested students.
The Compton Mentor Fellowship Program supports graduating seniors from participating schools as they pursue projects relating to the environment and sustainability, peace and conflict resolution, population and reproductive health, and climate change and energy policy.
