As we’re working on bringing together our Environmental Crochet art installation, we’ve been thinking a lot about the best way to showcase our work. And I’m happy to announce that we will be hosting the Steps to a Sustainable World event on April 19th in collaboration with many other exciting sustainability-focused groups and projects at Boston University and in the greater Boston area.
Participating groups include: Marine Science Association, Bring Your Own Plastics, Sustainable Ocean Alliance, BU Gardening Committee, DivestBU and Tidal-Shift. Our goal for this event is to bring a wide range of student-driven and community-driven initiatives involving sustainability and environmental issues together in one space and provide a platform for them to share their projects and work. We will tackle issues such as the impact of climate change on corals and coral bleaching, reducing plastic waste, and repurposing waste materials for artistic purposes. We also have students who are doing incredible work in organizing a cooperative garden on the top of the CAS building on campus, and pushing for Boston University’s divestment from fossil fuels.
We hope you will be able to join us for this exciting event! Please register here (this event is free and open to the public!).
This event is part of Innovation Week at BU! April 17-20, 2018 is an entire week dedicated to recognizing and celebrating novel ideas and endeavors across Boston University and the community! Celebrate with us and check for the full schedule here: http://www.bu.edu/innovate/innovationweek/
