A wild foods workshop, a talk by renowned environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and a trash-inspired fashion show are some of the highlights of Franklin & Marshall College's Sustainability Week, which began Sunday, Sept. 29, and continues through Saturday, Oct. 5.
The themes of the annual series of events, sponsored by the College's Wohlsen Center for the Sustainable Environment, are conserving water and reducing waste."Sustainability Week, which in previous years has been observed in April to coincide with Earth Day, is a time when we make a concerted effort to educate the campus about consumption," said Sarah Dawson, director of the Wohlsen Center. The Wohlsen Center moved up Sustainability Week to get the campus participating in sustainability efforts closer to the start of the year. "We absolutely encourage students and staff to become involved as we all work to become more educated consumers."
