Karenna Gore to Speak at SVC
The eldest daughter of former Vice President Al Gore was raised with an environmental conscience. As director of the Center for Earth Ethics (CCE), Karenna Gore travels the globe to work with others to build an inclusive and just way of life for all people and the natural world. As we celebrate the return of spring, Earth Day and All-Species Day, join Southern Vermont College at 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 23, for a special opportunity to hear her speak at Everett Mansion on campus. A buffet dinner and cash bar by Ramunto’s Restaurant will fund the CEE and SVC Student Environmental initiatives. The cost is $35/person and $20/ under age 10. Seating is limited; tickets can be ordered in advance at svc.edu/earth or picked up at Ramunto’s, 519 Main Street, Bennington.
In her talk, title ‘Integrity and the Earth, Valuing Where We Come From to Protect What We Love,’ Gore will share stories of her work helping others to build an inclusive and just way of life that cares for all people and the rest of the natural world. “Karenna Gore was raised with an environmental conscience,” said SVC president David Evans. “She has traveled and made an impact in various places around our globe, working with others to build an inclusive and just way of life that cares for all people and the rest of the natural world. This event is a very special opportunity to bring her important message to southern Vermont and to enjoy community food and conversation.” Gore is the author of ‘Lighting the Way: Nine Women Who Changed Modern America.’
