Dr. Beverly Younger, a lecturer in the Department of Social Work at Governors State University, decided to do more to combat global warming than turn the lights off and recycle her newspapers.

Younger decided to become an advocate and educator as a volunteer trainer with The Climate Project, a nonprofit organization, begun by former Vice President Al Gore, to promote awareness of global warming.

On Wednesday, April 4, from 6 to 7:20 p.m., in Sherman Hall at Governors State University, Younger will present the images and information that explain global warming and what must be done to halt it. Her presentation draws on the scientific highlights illustrated in the Academy Award-winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth.
