Campus Sustainability Day

Haley Greenberg ’14 and Emma Pattiz ’13 have plans.

This year, Wesleyan took a big step forward by registering with AASHE, the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, as a follow up to President Roth signing the Presidents’ Climate Commitment last year. We’ve also made an important commitment to better our community by joining STARS, the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System, to rate how sustainable our institution is and find ways to make it better.

Join your fellow sustainability advocates in a day of awareness and appreciation for everything we’re doing beyond these BIG steps, from Long Lane Farm, to WILDWes, WesFRESH, Campus Composting, Urban Gardening, Green Fund, CRI, and so much more! Come enjoy an explosion of good eats and treats at the Farmers’ Market and join the conversation in Usdan110 where we’ll be screening a keynote address from the organizers of Campus Sustainability Day beyond Wesleyan. Volunteer at the Farm, WILDwes courtyard, or Middletown urban gardens! Watch demos by student groups and visiting environmentalists! Also, bring your bike to pedal for power for a smoothie while listening to live music performances all afternoon!

When: Wednesday, October 24.
Where:Usdan Courtyard

Interested in what your fellow Wesleyan students are doing to make our community a more sustainable place? Interested in participating in Campus Sustainability Day on October 24 to broadcast all the great initiatives we have? Interested in helping plan the day of festivities on campus?

Check out AASHE and Campus Sustainability Day here!

Next week we will hold a brainstorming session with Jen Kleindienst, our Sustainability Coordinator, to get the ball rolling. Contact hgreenberg(at)wesleyan(dot)edu for more information.
