The Yale Office of Sustainability is thrilled to announce that this year’s Celebrate Sustainability will take place October 9 – 13, 2017!

Celebrate Sustainability is a week-long series of events hosted by individuals, departments, and groups across Yale to raise awareness and deepen campus engagement around sustainability. These events include waste audits, service projects, guest lectures, educational tours, and much more.

This year’s theme is Enhancing Sustainability through Community Collaboration. We encourage working together with other campus or community groups when planning an event to broaden the discussion around sustainability and form new partnerships that can enhance our sustainability goals.

For the third year in a row, we are also taking part in Connecticut Campus Sustainability Week, an initiative that is part of the Connecticut Alliance for Campus Sustainability’s efforts to empower sustainability actions in Connecticut’s higher education institutions. Throughout the week, you can find sustainability events at campuses across the state.

We encourage student groups, departments, schools, and units to consider hosting an event for this year’s Celebrate Sustainability. Join us by showcasing your innovations, celebrating sustainable successes, and exploring the challenges we still face.

Register an event here.

For support in planning, advertising, and/or submitting an event, please contact Beata Fiszer (beata.fiszer@yale.edu). Find ways to make your event more sustainable with our green event checklist and get your event green certified.

Check back to our online calendar as new events are added, and use the hashtag #ysustain when you’re celebrating sustainability this year! We look forward to working with you to make this year’s Celebrate Sustainability engaging and inspirational.
