Sustainability Café on February 3rd will explain IC's sustainability efforts


Contributed by Marian Brown

The Sustainability Café on Monday, February 3rd will feature Marian Brown, presenting “Campus Sustainability: Hiding in Plain Sight.”  The Café will be held in Center for Natural Sciences Room 112 at 4:00PM, in conjunction with the Environmental Seminar. This talk kicks off the Spring 2014 Sustainability Café/Environmental Seminar series, which will feature the work of our own faculty and staff to advance our campus sustainability efforts.   

Marian Brown, special assistant for campus and community sustainability, has primary responsibility to chronicle the steady advance of Ithaca College’s efforts to develop sustainability curricula, create sustainability-related research opportunities, incorporate sustainable decision-making into campus operations, and reach out to inform and engage our community.  Brown will discuss the many ways in which Ithaca College is manifesting its commitment to sustainability, including the many programs and activities underway that do not reference the term “sustainability.”

“Teachable edibles” – local, organic and/or seasonal snacks – for the Spring 2014 Sustainability Café series are being sponsored by Ithaca College Dining Services whose motto is “Sustainability – Healthy – Fresh.” Please bring your reusable mug and fill up at the nearest drinking fountain or provide your own beverage of choice.

This event is free and open to the public.
