Earth Day is still a month away, but the Pratt Institute has green on its mind right now. (And not just because of St. Patrick’s Day.) Green Week 2013 is upon us, and here is a schedule (including action campaigns that start Monday).
I’m participating in three related events. NYPIRG holds “Wasted” at the Pratt Student Union 8pm Thursday. Learn about the garbage we produce from students who will display the results of their disposal this week. I will make brief remarks.
On Saturday, the Center for Sustainable Design Studies presents the third annual Sustainability Crash Course. I’ll discuss the history of upcycling aluminum at 11:15am.
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Hello Etsy takes place at the Pratt Institute. I will moderate the “Reimagining Consumption” panel featuring Robin Chase of Zipcare, Michelle Long of the Business Alliance of Local Living Economies, and Karen Brown of the Center for Ecoliteracy Sunday at 9am.
