Ithaca College will host a screening of the film “Money & Life” on Wednesday, April 16 at 7pm in Textor 101. “Money & Life” is an inspirational documentary that asks a provocative question: can we see the economic crisis not as a disaster, but as a tremendous opportunity? This film connects the dots on our current economic pains and offers a new story of money based on an emerging paradigm of planetary well-being that understands all of life as profoundly interconnected. “Money & Life” invites us to meet the challenge of our time: to participate in the great transition to a sustainable, equitable and restorative economy that meets the needs and realities of the 21st century.

The Energy Challenge is ON!!!

Contributed by Marian Brown on 03/31/2014 

Calling all on-campus residents: the Energy Challenge is underway! RHA and Sustainability at Ithaca are co-sponsoring this campaign to see which residence hall can reduce its electricity consumption the most over the next two weeks. There will be prizes awarded to the hall with the lowest per capita energy use during the period and for the hall that has the greatest percentage reduction during the Challenge. The Challenge period started yesterday, March 30, and will end on Saturday, April 12, with the winners announced at RHA's Earth Fest on April 15. Check out the informational poster on the bulletin board in your hall - or refer to the special Energy Challenge Installments in your bathroom stalls - for tips on how to easily reduce your energy use, not just during the Energy Challenge period, but all the time! How low can you go?

The Sustainability Café on Monday, March 31st will partner with the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF) to host a screening of the film, “The President’s Dilemma.” The Café will be held in Center for Natural Sciences Room 112 at 4:00PM, in conjunction with the Environmental Seminar.
