SU Showcase Offers Sustainability Workshops
SU Showcase will sponsor two workshops this semester that will offer students opportunities to learn about sustainability issues, engage in hands-on projects with students from many disciplines and earn a credit.
The “Verdant Compound” workshop will bring students from the University and the local community together to build a hub for learning about sustainability and cultivating self-reliance. Through the construction of a geodesic greenhouse, growing food, building an earth oven, learning bike repair, building bike-powered phone chargers and gaining expertise in online community building, this series is an incubator for cultivating self-reliant, sustainable communities.
The first meeting is mandatory and will be held Feb. 1 from 1-4 p.m. Students are then required to participate in two of six workshops, which will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the following dates: Feb. 8 and 22; March 8 and 22; and April 5 and 19. The culminating event will take place on May 3.
Admission to the class is application-based; contact Professor Susannah Sayler at firstname.lastname@example.org to apply.
“Climate Refugees” is a weekend workshop to explore and express the upheavals of climate change through video art. An initial meeting will be held Feb. 2, and the workshop will be held Feb. 7-9. Attendance at all four sessions is required for credit.
Registration is open through Monday, Jan. 27. Contact Rachel May at email@example.com for more information or to register.
