Pace Academy’s FoodYou Campaign is about the way that our choices, as individuals and as a society, intersect with the environment. During this 2013-2014 awareness initiative, we will examine some of the many pieces that are set in motion by what we put on our plates. Through events and partnerships, the campaign will broaden the Pace community’s understanding of our global food system. We’ll be talking about the FoodYou engineer, grow, kill, need, take, waste, trade, and share. Watch for updates about the developing campaign here.
Changing landscapes and the ability of some carnivores to adapt to human settings have led to increased human-carnivore interactions in suburbs and cities. Carnivores are essential to our ecosystem, but intolerance and misinformation can impede the conservation of these important species. Following-up on last year's successful seminar, When Carnivores Become Neighbors, with Conrad Reining, eastern program director of the Wildlands Network, Michelle Land, director of the Pace Academy, Dyson College Professor Melissa Grigione, and Pace Law Professor David Cassuto, Pace Academy will make this emerging field of research and conservation a priority in the coming year.
As part of Pace Academy's 007 Campaign, 120 Pace University students and faculty marched a mile with buckets of water on their heads, in solidarity with those in the developing world who must retrieve water for their families through difficult circumstances.For the students’ efforts, $5,000 was donated to Engineers Without Borders to create a community water well in Tanzania.
