This week was the MPA Upper School’s Environmental Club’s annual E-Week! E-Club members came up with a fun itinerary for students to get more involved in environmental issues, enjoy the outdoors, and attend other climate centered events.
“Making E-Week virtual this year has been pretty difficult,” shared senior Ella Jones, E-Club president, “We would traditionally hold a ping pong tournament and a game night, but we have adapted by coming up with new ideas which can encourage people to spend time with friends and also get outside in the fresh air.”
They held a Zoom discussion about how to get involved with Climate Strike’s Minnesota chapter, held a Netflix party, carved out time to spend time outdoors, held a letter writing campaign to Minnesota representatives on the importance of climate action, and a photography competition.
