UNH to Host "Step it Up, Durham" Rally Nov. 3

October 31, 2007

Saturday, Nov. 3, UNH students, faculty, friends, and neighbors are invited to Step it Up, Durham, one of thousands of national events calling on our representatives to cut carbon emissions 80 percent by 2050.

Step It Up was started by professor Bill McKibben and students of Middlebury College, and UNH participated in the inaugural event last spring. As a leader in sustainability efforts and an epicenter for the first in the nation primary process, UNH is an ideal location for this event.

The day will start at 10 a.m. with tailgating (on bicycle and foot, of course) before the UNH-Northeastern football game. Visibility will continue during the game. To show UNH’s green leadership, the “Step it Up” petition photograph will be taken of Wildcat fans during the game, all stepping up with their green “Step it Up” fingers in the air.

After the game, the rally will continue from 2-4 p.m. in the Murkland Courtyard with music, speakers, local and student organizations, and local foods. A presidential candidate may possibly make an appearance.

Join the Durham community this Saturday to encourage others and learn more about how to make a difference on personal, local, and political levels.
