BETHEL — The Western Mountain Senior College will continue their Brown Bag Lunch program from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 28, at the Moses Mason House on Broad Street.

College President Nancy Davis said the topic for the Jan. 28 session will focus on climate change and is a spin-off from the program’s discussion in October on community resilience.

Local conservation biologist and climate activist Ken Hotopp will act as facilitator of the session, Davis said.

“He will help us discuss ways to address this global challenge at the local level,” Davis said. “He suggests the following questions to consider: ‘As citizens, what do we know about collective action? What do we know about climate disruption? Given the scale of our challenge, what should be the highest-priority actions locally?’”

Davis said that the Brown Bag Series was created in an effort to make the college “responsive to a new generation” and to “reach out to a wider community.”

Davis said that in order to make sure there are an adequate number of chairs at the Moses Mason House, people interested in attending should RSVP by Jan. 23.
