What Would You Fight For?: “Fighting for Renewable Energy”
In Spring 2022, the second cohort of students traveled to Puerto Rico over spring break, March 5-12, as part of the seminar course “Puerto Rico: Road Map to a Renewable Future” offered through the Energy Studies Minor. Similar to the inaugural seminar class, time was spent in San Juan and Adjuntas studying and experiencing energy challenges and learning from local leaders about alternative paths toward a more reliable and affordable future. An enhancement to the 2022 experience was the group’s participation in a major solar panel installation in Adjuntas.
A second special experience was the presence of NBC’s film crew during the production of the What Would You Fight For? video, “Fighting for Renewable Energy.” Lucas Barreto ’23 and his parents, Professor Yamil Colón, and Rebecca Rodriguez Banch of Casa Pueblo participated in the interviews.
A recap of this week-long experience can be viewed on our website.
