Our 10/10/10 Service Learning Project

At the beginning of this Fall semester, a Transition Keene Task Force organizer asked the Environmental Studies class on "Organizing for Social Change" to help with local organizing for 10/10/10, a Global Work Party for Climate Protection sponsored internationally by that utlimtatly included over 7,300 different work parties in 188 countries. The class agreed to work on this project as part of the course's service learning project. They planned and carried out several 10/10/10 related activities:
Assisting with the filming and editing of a 30 minute documentary on all the Keene 10/10/10 work parties including Antioch's (see YouTube clips below);

Raising over $1,010.10 for Antioch's Green Bikes Initiative;

Organizing three bike related on-campus workshops for 10/10/10;

Inspiring other campus groups to host additional Antioch workparties (like the AUNE Community Garden and AUNE Library workparty events); and

Encouraging Antioch alumni, student, faculty, and staff turn out for the Keene-wide evening 10/10/10 celebration downtown.
