Be part of UNCG’s Earth Day, at Sustainability Scholarship Fair

Photo of garden at Music BuildingThe spring 2014 Sustainability Scholarship Fair will be held on Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22, noon-4 p.m., in the foyer of the Music Building and near the bridge in Peabody Park.

It will provide an opportunity for faculty currently engaged in teaching and research in sustainability to meet, learn about, and network with others who also are involved in related activities.

Sustainability is a core value defined in UNCG’s Strategic Plan 2009-2014 as “the enduring interconnectedness of social equity, the environment, the economy, and aesthetics.”

There is no need to develop anything particular for this event. Come with an existing presentation, poster, syllabus, assignment(s), book, article, object, artwork, etc. Situate yourself (at a table or otherwise) inside or outside for any period during the event. And interact with the other faculty and the students, staff and community members who stop by.

If you have advanced undergraduate or graduate students actively involved in your or their own sustainability work, they are welcome to represent you and/or share their work as well. Please note, however, that space is limited, and faculty will be given priority.

The Sustainability Scholarship Fair is free and open to the public, and it is part of UNCG’s Earth Day activities. A reception with snacks and drinks will be provided. If you would like to participate, fill out the following form before April 17: https://docs.google.com/a/uncg.edu/forms/d/1r0JtDCGyj_n87OuCk2tnhsJ3qLBFRHvv3Hb6Op7q2RY/viewform
