“Waste Awareness Week”

  • Waste Awareness Week is a week-long sustainability event that specifically tackles the impact of waste mismanagement on the environment. The week will consist of a large variety of events that will appeal to all corners of our diverse campus. From interactive games, workshops and panels, to collaborative art shows, movie screenings and a gala dinner, Waste Awareness Week hopes to engage all students and push them to think more critically about their waste generation habits, the single-use culture and linear economic systems that enable them, and the out-of-sight-out-of-mind mentality that blinds them to the true consequences of this global crisis.”
