By Chris Henke on May 2, 2017

Dr. Andy Pattison, this year’s Burke Chair of Regional Studies, was busy during Colgate’s celebration of Earth Day and the 13 Days of Green that led up to it.  Dr. Pattison hosted two events, including a presentation and Q&A session with Dr. Cameron Brick of the Department of Psychology at Hamilton College (on April 11) and a panel of community members and students engaged through his course on local climate change planning (on April 21).

Drs. Pattison and Brick (seated at table in center) discuss the topic, “Why We Know What to Do and Still Fail to Protect the Environment,” in Donovan’s Pub.
