Celebrate Sustainability

Celebrate Sustainability will take place October 6-10, 2014. This week long series of events provides the Yale community with opportunities to recognize the successes, challenges, and innovations of sustainability at Yale. Celebrate Sustainability raises awareness and sparks campus-wide conversation about environmental, social, and economic priorities and accomplishments through a series of activities and speakers across campus.

This year’s theme is Empowering Change on Campus and in the Community. We hope that Celebrate Sustainability will help the Yale community discuss the following questions:

  • How can groups around campus be empowered with sustainability knowledge to act and lead in their respective communities?
  • What are Yale’s greatest challenges trying to work toward a more sustainable future?
  • What roles do innovation and participation play in sustainability at Yale?
  • How can sustainability initiatives at Yale positively impact the New Haven community?

We hope that your student group, department, school, or office will consider hosting an event for this year’s Celebrate Sustainability. Please contact Ryan Laemel, Woobridge Fellow at the Office of Sustainability, for support in the planning, advertising, and to register an event.

We look forward to seeing you at many of this year’s Celebrate Sustainability events!
