CA’s renewed mission statement commits us “to build a more just and sustainable future.” What does that mean? CA will host a Sustainability Festival right here on campus, the afternoon of April 5, to explore that question. The festival aims to raise awareness about pressing environmental issues, offer solutions, and educate us about some of the ways that our community is already working to make the planet a greener place.
We have planned a wonderful program! Do not miss out. Click here for full schedule and to register.
The festival will begin with a keynote speech by nationally-known environmental activist Sam Sankar, senior vice president of Earthjustice. We will continue with breakout sessions led by leaders in the fields of sustainable investing, food waste, net-zero communities, and effective engagement about climate change. We will also have exhibits where you can get a hands-on introduction to electric vehicles, experience the Arctic through virtual reality goggles, learn about hydroponic food production, test your skills at recycling and composting, and much more! The festival will conclude with a presentation by U.S. Congresswoman Lori Trahan and a panel of alumnae/i who are already making a difference on behalf of the planet.
The entire CA community —alumnae/i, parents, students, faculty, and staff — is invited to gather for this event. Take part in the conversation about what it means to live responsibly. Learn how to advocate for the changes that, if made today, will lead toward a more sustainable future.
