Terra Verde

Terra Verde – August 19, 2011

The East Bay is home to a rich mix of advocacy organizations that promote social change by coordinating stakeholders from across society—from the grassroots to governments. Today we discuss community colleges as a particular kind organization that is apt to connect people from disparate sectors of society and in different stages of their careers, bringing them together around one table, or one field site as the case may be. Community colleges thus serve as a forum for interaction and integration, enhancing environmental efforts at large. Joining me in the studio to share their experiences at community college are three East Bay locals, Janis Poon, Jorge Valencia, and Robin Freeman, chair of the Environmental Management and Technology Department at Merritt College.
