D.C. Green Student Organizations Meeting

Want to get off-campus for a night and meet some other college kids who care about the environment? Come to the DC Green Students Organizations Meeting this Thursday, October 20, at American University! EcoAction will be meeting at the Dupont GUTS bus stop at 6 PM, or you can meet us at American at 7 PM. You can RSVP on the Facebook event

This is the semesterly inter-collegeiate green groups meeting, where green groups from Georgetown, American University, George Washington University, Catholic University, Georgetown Law, the University of DC, and others get together to talk about what they’re doing and to share ideas! We’ll discuss what works on campus, what doesn’t work, how to work with administration, how to mobilize the student body, and more.

Last semester, we hosted this event at Georgetown, and it was a great success. You can read about in this previous blog post. We had presentations, break-out groups, and casual conversation about all things collegiate and sustainable. For example, we learned about the community garden program at George Washington University, about energy auditing at Georgetown Law, and about Catholic’s efforts to establish a base of environmentally-minded students for the first time.

Anyone is welcome to come to this event, even (especially) if you’re new to EcoAction! Plus, American will be providing us with dinner. Again, meet us at the Dupont GUTS bus stop at 6 PM – email if you’re not sure how to find it. We’ll see you there!
