Lunch and Learn about Sustainability!

Western Sustainability invites students, faculty,  staff and the public to a new series of “Lunch & Learn” Sustainability Conversations, Fall Quarter 2013.

These events are a continuation of the successful Sustainability Conversation series  in the Western Libraries last year, hosted by Western Sustainability, in collaboration with the Teaching-Learning Academy and Western Libraries Sustainability Team.

All Fall 2013 Lunch & Learn conversations are held on Tuesdays, from 12:30 - 1:30 pm. October 8th and November 5th and 19th events are located in Wilson 265 (TLA seating area). The December 3rd conversation, potluck lunch will be at Fairhaven College, - room # TBA.

October 8 –  Got Green Campus Ideas?
If  you are looking to make the campus greener, more sustainable, more energy efficient, join the conversation with  Western’s A.S. Green Energy Fee Program Coordinator Regan Clover, and Education Coordinator Sadie Normoyle, and learn more at this week’s Lunch & Learn Sustainability Conversation.

Anyone in the campus community can apply for a Small Grant between $500 and $2,000, or a Large Grant between $2,000 and $300,000. Western’s students, faculty, and staff are invited to submit proposals for the 2013-2014 Green Energy Fee Grant Program.   Proposal due dates are just around the corner, so come, talk, and learn more.
