Active Recreation: Upcoming Events and Games
Active Recreation is a relaxed environment for ASU students to play in casual drop-in activities and games. The best part is, our activities and games are created by students FOR STUDENTS, so they are ideally what is in demand. Completely unique to ASU, this program is entirely FREE. If you are a student you can participate in as many Active Recreation events as you please!
For the student looking to play at an unrestricted level with no commitment to leagues, Active Recreation is the place for you! The student experience is valuable; therefore, these are activities, events and games for students by students, come play!
The schedule is completed and posted monthly. This allows students to provide feedback and insight on what events they would want to participate in for the next month.
Active Recreation’s first semester, Fall 2015, wasn’t as successful as we hoped it would be. This semester, we want to focus on developing a relationship with GPSA. One main goal of Active Rec is to get the students who are not traditionally involved on campus involved in some way! As a graduate student myself, I know how demanding academics can be. However, by the same token, we know how beneficial taking your mind off of homework, tests, or studying can be. Come out and play events with Active Recreation for time off studying, a stress reliever, or just to have some fun.
We can also program whatever events/activities the students want. We are not constricted to just athletic events. We have chess, Pokémon, and other nontraditional events scheduled already this semester.
Our first event will be a chess tournament at the Memorial Union on Feb. 13th from 12:00-2:00pm
I look forward to hearing back from some of you!
If you need anything else from us, please do not hesitate to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

Science Fiction TV Dinner: Lost in Space
Tuesday, February 16, 6:00pm
Free event – RSVP today at http://asulostinspace.eventbrite.com
Location: Marston Exploration Theater, ISTB4 building, ASU Tempe campus
Running alongside Star Trek’s original series at the dawn of the Space Age, Lost in Space presented a strikingly different vision for the future of human exploration in space. Lost in Space imagines deep space colonization as homesteading: the series is based on the classic novel The Swiss Family Robinson, and it blends domestic squabbles among members of a nuclear family with malfunctioning robots, emergency landings, rocket suits, Cold War espionage, and perilous alien encounters.
Join us for a screening and conversation with Paul Hirt, a professor of environmental history and senior sustainability scholar at Arizona State University, and Ruth Wylie, assistant director of the Center for Science and the Imagination and assistant research professor at ASU’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College.
We’ll have free dinner available for the first 150 guests. RSVP today at http://asulostinspace.eventbrite.com.

After Paris: ENERGY, CARBON, and SOCIETY IN GLOBAL TRANSITION
The December 2015 Paris climate deal marks a major turning point in the global debate about energy change. In its wake, societies around the world confront the pragmatic challenge of transforming the world’s energy systems from bottom-to-top. This transformation raises profound and complex questions at the intersection of energy, carbon, and society. How are carbon and the energy infrastructures built around it wrapped up in our forms of cultural, economic, and political organization—and how will these change as we decarbonize energy systems? What will energy transitions look like, and how will they shape future societies? How will our energy futures reflect our energy pasts—and what can we learn from past energy transitions to inform future pathways? How do we manage the complex processes of socio-technical change entailed in energy systems change? How can we ensure that the benefits, costs, and risks of energy transitions are distributed justly across diverse communities in global chains of energy supply and demand? Join us as we take up these questions in conversation with two of today’s most important and provocative thinkers about energy and society.

Living oil, casting the modern energy system and aspirations for a renewable future
Stephanie LeMenager is the Barbara and Carlisle Moore Professor of English and Environmental Studies at the University of Oregon. She is the author of four books, most recently Living Oil and Teaching Climate Change in the Humanities, a collection co-edited with Stephen Siperstein and Shane Hall.
LeMenager will discuss the concept of “Zombie Fuel,” which extends her proposition of Living Oil, casting the modern energy system and aspirations for a renewable future as a comedic horror story about living death—and
resilience—in the Anthropocene.
