In this talk, Peter Buck will share his experience, hope, and strength about living in our fractured world. He will invite us to slow down, connect with ourselves, our neighbors, and the web of life in the moment. He will then share a story about how his experiences with court cases and Lyme Disease, a potential water threat, dying hemlocks, and bad policy spurred him to action. Buck will share not just “why” he has acted, but “how” he has worked with others to develop climate action and adaptation in the Centre Region. Finally, we will return where we started, by centering ourselves.
Peter Buck works on and for a more just and sustainable world. He manages academic programming at Penn State’s Sustainability Institute. He has served in elected and appointed office in municipal, regional, and school board government. He has authored, co-authored, and passed local and regional climate policy, chaired climate action and adaptation planning and solar power working groups, and testified on solar power, climate action, and redistricting before Pennsylvania commissions. Peter’s favorite places are in the forests, mountain gaps, and recovering ruins of central Pennsylvania. He lives in State College with his son, Sacha.
