On Friday, October 23, join hundreds of other members of the IC community in a "ghost walk" to observe the International Day of Climate Action. We need 350 students, faculty and staff to dress up in ghost costumes with the bottom dyed blue to symbolize the potentially fatal problem of climate change and the rising sea levels it causes. The "ghost walkers" will assemble to take a picture in the shape of "350," then conduct a parade around campus.
