This spring break, the Sustainability Office and Irving Institute for Energy and Society led an Energy Immersion trip to Appalachia. Over 10 days, our group of 10 students met with landowners, decision-makers, community organizers, watchdog groups, environmental and social justice activists, and leaders in the extraction industry. Students learned first hand how histories, culture, law, economics, and technology influence the way our energy system operates in this region. A key question students are reflecting on now is: as the energy landscape shifts, and the demand for coal declines, what does a just energy transition look like for Appalachia? Come hear these students share their experiences, insights, and ideas to turn some of the many challenges they explored on the trip into opportunities.
