University Awareness Campaigns

As part of the fulfillment of Pace Academy’s mission, we take to the Pace University community to stir up discussion on current and critical environmental issues.

In order to give certain topics the extensive exploration they require, we dedicate a year of education and action initiatives to one major theme through the promotion of a university-wide awareness campaign.

 


2013-2014: FoodYou Campaign

Pace Academy’s FoodYou Campaign is about the way that our choices, as individuals and as a society, intersect with the environment. During this 2013-2014 awareness initiative, we examine some of the many pieces that are set in motion by what we put on our plates. Through events and partnerships, the campaign broadens the Pace community’s understanding of our global food system.

If you have an idea you would like to contribute - an event you would like to propose, a lecture you would like to see, a field trip you would like to take - send us an email at paceacademy@pace.edu.

2012-2013: The .007% Campaign

Launched in fall of 2012, our first awareness campaign took on the resource that inspires so much of Pace Academy’s work: freshwater.
 
The .007% Campaign (“double-oh seven campaign”), as it was called, addressed the many pieces of water issues and continuously drew the conversation back to the fact that only .007% of the Earth’s water is readily available to us humans for domestic, agricultural, and industrial uses.
 
The campaign snowballed from co-sponsored lectures and water-focused class discussions to petitions, charity walks, and a mock US Senate Environment and Public Works Committee hearing – a first ever for Pace University.
 
For a look at some of the year’s activities, explore the .007% Campaign website at pace.edu/007. Stay in-the-know on water issues by following our Facebook.
