Zero Waste Home says
CMU Sustainable Earth is proud to present Sustainability Weekend 2016, Carnegie Mellon’s inaugural sustainability-focused conference, taking place on campus from March 31 to April 2.

Environmentalism often gets a bad rap - some may associate it with recycling water bottles, hemp, and a general dislike for traditional personal hygiene. While some stereotypes are based off of fact (others less so), in 2016 we want to be thinking about environmentalism in the larger context of sustainability. In organizing Sustainability Weekend, our goal is to pique your interest and show you this larger context. Sustainability is holistic: it is political, personal, economic, and social. It can dialogue with everything from urban planning to the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Come learn, network, and have fun!

Ticket Required:
