UD Students Participate In Global Climate Strike

Sep 20, 2019

Dozens of University of Dayton students took part in today’s Global Climate Strike, joining thousands of other young people around the world.

Students gathered at UD’s Kennedy Union Fountain this afternoon to promote environmental sustainability and urge politicians to take action against climate change.

Senior Anthony Lapham was one of several students waiting in line to sign a sustainability pledge at the event.

“We have a moral obligation not only to ourselves but to every individual on this planet to engage in action even on the smallest level to ensure that people elsewhere don't have to suffer because of us.”

Other local Climate Strike plans included a march from Sinclair Community College’s campus to the Dayton Federal Building and a rally at the Ohio Statehouse.
