FOSSIL FUEL FOUL PLAY

with Emily Pachoud (SCU, Program Coordinator of SCAAP's ENACT Program) & Emily Burke (Creighton University). In this student-led session, learn about how student leadership, student leverage, and student voices are shaping divestment efforts in institutions that are not prone to enact these just measures without public pressure.

She is double-majoring in Sociology and Justice & Society and triple-minoring in Sustainability, Theology and Graphic Design. She is the President of the student sustainability group GreenJays and a leader of the Creight*n Climate Movement. She co-authored the student legislation that proposed fossil fuel divestment and was very involved in the student activism that led to Creighton's Board of Trustees decision to divest. She is involved with Catholic Climate Covenant's youth and young adult mobilization and is excited by the potential of students' and young adults' collective climate action. After graduating Creighton, she will pursue her PhD in Environmental Sociology.
 
EMILY PACHOUD is a sophomore at Santa Clara University majoring in Environmental Studies and Sociology with minors in Sustainability and Religious Studies. She is the program coordinator of SCCAP's ENACT program, a Fossil Free SCU organizer, and on the GREEN Team executive board.
