Sustainability Workshops Offered This Semester
The Office of Sustainability Initiatives will offer two unique, one-credit sustainability workshops to students in the fall 2014 semester. These hands-on workshops are open to undergraduates from all disciplines.
“CLIMATOPIA!” (SOL 300) will explore climate change and the barriers to implementing solutions, and will invite students to develop scenarios for crossing those barriers and envisioning a positive future. The class will meet on four Friday afternoons, Sept. 5-26, from 2:15- 6 p.m. and will focus on creative writing and visual expression, aimed at creating a zine for distribution on campus and online.
“What’s on Your Plate?” (SOL 300/CLB 400) will help participants learn about campus, local and regional food systems. The workshop will meeting on two Saturdays, Sept. 27 and Oct. 11, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and include a visit to a farm, readings and discussion about sustainable food production. Students will also engage in a creative project using photography and text to explain the confusing lexicon of food choices to campus diners.
