Organizers are looking for individuals or groups who wand to participate in a campus Sustainability Showcase on Thursday, April 16.
The even will feature booths where different programs around the campus can showcase how they are contributing to environmental awareness and responsibility. This can be sharing things like:
Information displayed can be created by program faculty or students – for example, have educating the public about green initiatives in the industry be a project for students in a class, or use samples of student work reflecting green practices in the field. Creation of a public information display could also be done by a student club associated with the program.
If you think your program would like to participate – and we certainly want as much participation as possible – please let one of the members of the Earth Day activities sub-committee — John Vierra, Kahale Saito, Eric Lagrimis, Cynthia Smith — know no later than April 6.As part of the run up to Earth Day, the Sustainability Committee is also sponsoring a contest for all HonCC faculty, staff and administrators that identifies and recognize ‘best practices’ in the area reducing or recycling. The goal is not only to recognize those carrying out more earth-friendly practices but also to build up a permanent written collection of best practice suggestions to preserve, post and share across the campus.
