Environmentalist Adam Werbach to Speak at Concord University

Athens, W.Va. – Adam Werbach will speak on environmentalism Wednesday, April 13 at 1 p.m. in the main auditorium of the Alexander Fine Arts Center at Concord University.

Werbach is considered one of the best-known environmentalists of his generation. At age 23, he was elected national president of the Sierra Club. He later left the Sierra Club to start Act Now Productions in order to fulfill his passion to use new media to create social change. Presently, at age 30, he travels frequently to fight on behalf of threatened common assets. He is currently working with Senators McCain and Liberman on new global warming legislation and helping to fight the Bush administration’s plan to drill for fossil fuels in the Rocky Mountain West.

Admission is free for this event.
