Thurs., April 27, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Room 1010(m) Boardroom

*This is part of the Great Discussion series, which requires registration. See details below.

The South China Sea is a locus of competing territorial claims, and China its most vocal claimant. Beijing’s interest has intensified disputes with other countries in the region in recent years, especially since China has increased its naval presence. Despite rising international pressure, including an unfavorable ruling by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, China staunchly defends its policies in the region. Preventing tensions from boiling over is a matter of careful diplomacy.

Format:
6:30 – Video background report (compliments printed briefing paper provided in advance)*
7:00 – Remarks by guest
7:30 – group discussion

*Videos and Briefing papers provided by the Foreign Policy Association.

Enrollment is limited.  $35 to register for the series (8 meetings)**

Earth Week activities for Fri., April 21:

Information booths & community groups in the PUB courtyard
10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Informational tables in the PUB Courtyard highlighting Earth Week events, reasons for removing invasive plants, Environmental Club activities, the progress of the campus Rain Garden, Tree Campus USA recognition, and SCOF promoting cafeteria recycling and ADA issues.

Campus-wide fruiting ivy removal, (meet in PUB courtyard and disperse from there)
12:30-3:30 p.m.
Please join us for a volunteer opportunity to participate in campus-wide fruiting ivy removal.

This is an all-volunteer effort to remove fruiting ivy from our campus planting beds during Earth Week 2017. Birds love to eat ripe ivy berries, which they then spread throughout the region into our yards and greenbelts causing major damage to both our personal and public spaces. Ivy is an extremely damaging plant once it becomes aerial and should be eradicated from our ecosystem.

We’ll meet in the PUB courtyard at 12:30 p.m. and disperse from there.

Earth Week activities for Sat., April 22:

Native Plant Restoration, Meet in campus parking lot east of the Track/Soccer field
9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

All participants are welcome to join us for our annual Earth Day restoration event in the North Woods at Shoreline Community College. We will be removing invasive plants including ivy, laurel, holly, and blackberries, all of which are particularly bad because they produce huge amounts of berries and can reroot as their branches touch the ground. We will be planting a variety of native ground covers, shrubs, and trees. Gloves and tools will be provided, but if you have your own please bring them. Wear close-toed shoes or boots, layers of clothes, a raincoat if needed, and a hat. Also bring water.

We will meet in the campus parking lot just East of the Track/Soccer field. The restoration itself will take place in the North Woods of campus behind the Track/Soccer field.
