Activated Voices: Keeping My Campus Sustainable

March 07, 2013 By Tom Niemisto, Video Production Specialist

It's time we start giving our young people credit. Those in their late teens and early 20s are coming of age in a divided time, especially when it comes to environmental issues.

In this installment of Activated Voices, we spoke with Rick Beckel, a Macalester College sophomore who coordinates outreach for MacCARES, a coalition that encourages and facilitates students, staff and faculty to go green on campus and in their communities. Beckel says that college campuses are incubators for social action.



Activated Voices is a video series from Minnesota 2020 that focuses on the critical policy issues facing young Minnesotans.
