The Fierce History of Now: 25 years of change with the Environmental Center [VIDEO]

Monday, November 07, 2016

On October 2, 1991, a fully funded Environmental Center, or EC, opened its doors in an attic space in College Union Building, marking a permanent change in the way the school operates, and putting FLC on the maps as a green leader.

On this episode of Fortifact, we’ll have a look at how the EC fits into half a century of expanding concern for the earth’s systems. And we’ll look at the the Center’s emphasis on graduating students capable of becoming environmental leaders.

We’ll also talk to some of the Center’s builders, hear about its current goals and programs, and explore the EC’s legacy as it prepares to celebrate 25 years of advocacy for the planet and its people.

A team from FLC and Durango spent more than two weeks in May constructing a water system and communal taps in Than Taung, Myanmar.

The Village Aid Project is an all-volunteer campus program, open to students in any major, that brings together students, faculty, and community professionals to improve the infrastructure in impoverished communities in Latin America and Asia. 

This spring's team included two faculty, three community partners, and eight FLC students, who travelled to the Shan State, in Myanmar. There they also conducted monitoring and evaluation in five communities where water systems were implemented in prior years, and assessed new communities for water implementation projects in the summer of 2019.
