Take Ten for Climate Change

During the week of October 23, all instructors in the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama have pledged to “take ten minutes for climate change” in each of their classes and read aloud one of the plays from the Climate Change Theatre Action collection. The aim of this event is to open a school-wide conversation on theater’s potential to engage climate action.
