Sustainability Cafes

The primary objective of the Sustainability Café series is to fertilize the exchange of information and ideas regarding sustainability theory and practice among students, faculty, and staff at IC, and members of the local community. All Sustainability Cafés are free and open to the public and are widely advertised both on campus and in the local Ithaca community.

All Sustainability Cafés have featured “teachable edibles”, mostly organic and locally-grown season food products, served in a “zero waste” format. The "teachable edibles" for the Sustainability Cafés are co-sponsored by Ithaca College Dining Services, which has as its motto: Sustainable - Healthy - Fresh.

Sustainability Cafés have included a wide variety of internal and external speakers and content matter experts.

Spring 2014 Sustainability Cafés - Mondays, 4:00PM in Room 112 Center for Natural Sciences

This series - which is combined with the Environmental Seminar - has the theme of “Campus Sustainability: Hiding in Plain Sight.” The Café series will examine the various ways our own faculty and staff approach sustainability in teaching, research, and campus operations.
