Sustainability Forum 2/3 6-7:30pm

A message from the Office of Sustainability:

Come to the Feb 2010 Sustainability Forum held on Wed, Feb 3, 2010 from 6:00pm-7:30pm in 2304 Tolman Hall to learn more about the various environmental student groups and their initiatives on campus! There are 30+ environmental groups offered at UCB with focuses ranging from green energy to sustainable agriculture to green business consulting. Figure out what each group is about and how you can get involved or just get updated on campus sustainability and network others at the forum! Short presentations will be made by each group while the rest of the time will be for mingling. This is also a great place to find internships and summer jobs, so don’t miss out! Open to everyone and snacks will be provided.

RSVP to the Facebook event and invite all your friends! For a full list of the organizations coming, keep visiting the Facebook event. We’d love to see and hear from you! The forum is hosted by the UC Berkeley Office of Sustainability and made possible by The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF). For more info on the forum, click here.

If you haven’t already, become a fan of the Office’s Facebook Page and sign up for our Bright Green monthly newsletter!
