Feet to the Fire Meeting


From Sewon Kang ’14: 

Feet to the Fire does more than give you a free t-shirt during orientation. F2F is a committee made up of faculty, staff, students, and community members, and it’s being totally revamped! Instead of discussing environmentalism-related programming and events, we want to experiment with the idea of having the committee be programming creators. We want to reach our goals by developing creative outputs that contextualize F2F, communicate SAGES initiatives, and make F2F the culture creator on campus around environmentalism.

At this upcoming info session/meeting, we will be discussing the details of what is meant by “creative outputs” as well as three pilot projects we will focus on for 2014-2015:

  1. increasing composting on campus and in Middletown
  2. promoting the Wes to Wes initiative
  3. bringing awareness to the Connecticut River.

Email skang(at)wesleyan(dot)edu if you have any questions or want to attend the info session on Wednesday, November 13 at 4:15pm at the Downey House lounge.
