November 4, 2014--Peter Galvin, an eco-activist who has participated in world-wide campaigns to preserve biological diversity, will be speaking to all Northwestern Oklahoma State University campuses via Skype Friday, Nov. 7, from noon to -1 p.m.  Galvin’s speech can be seen on Alva’s campus in Education Center, room 209, in Enid room 221, Woodward room 114, and Ponca City 130.  Galvin’s talk is open to all students, employees and the general public at no cost.

Galvin was invited to Northwestern by the Conserving Our Ranger Environment (CORE) Club.  The CORE Club is the student environmental group at Northwestern, dedicated to community service projects and other eco-friendly events and activities.  Galvin was chosen to speak at Northwestern by Dr. Steven Mackie, associate professor of education and CORE faculty sponsor, who met Galvin while attending Prescott College. 

Galvin recently participated in the United Nation Climate Summit at UN Head Quarters in New York, a convention held to raise awareness and speed up action against climate change; and People’s Climate March, where more than 100 world leaders gathered in New York City on Sept. 21 to watch the largest climate march in history.
