Net Impact held its final GA meeting before spring break on Monday, March 7th. This meeting was a brief break from our apparel industry series, which will resume on March 21st. We kicked off this meeting with another report from our CSR news team, this time from James Steimle and Young Jae Chun.
They delved into Leonardo DiCaprio's speech at the Oscars, in which he addressed the imminent threat of climate change. They also talked about how climate change has affected the film industry, with many filmmakers unable to rely on past filming locations due to the degradation of the environment. Additionally, they discussed some of the actions Leo has taken to help combat climate change, including his narration and co-directing of the film The Eleventh Hour.
After hearing from our CSR news team, we reminded everyone of our volunteer event at the Hilltop Gardens coming up on Thursday. Next, we heard from some of our project teams, who updated us on the progress they have made so far this semester and on the challenges that they face going forward. Finally, we broke up into groups to have a fun activity to get to know each other a little better! We hope you had a great time at this meeting and wish you a fun and safe spring break!
