CNR Student Co-manages Recycling Program

By Wendy Edelstein, NewsCenter, UC Berkeley

Reusable objects deserve a second chance. That's the thinking behind a recently launched campus website that aims to decrease waste by helping Berkeley students, faculty, staff, and departments divest of unwanted items and find things they need.

The goal of the Exchange is to motivate people to give stuff away, rather than throw it into the garbage and add to the landfill.

The Exchange is modeled after the Freecycle Network, a global nonprofit compromising more than 4,800 local groups that facilitates materials exchange. Use of the Exchange is limited to members of the campus community and requires a email address to register.

Letter from the Vice Chancellor for Research, Graham Fleming 9/10/10

Dear Students,

As our next generation of energy and climate scientists and policy makers, I am inviting you to attend an unprecedented symposium featuring energy and climate scientists from both UC Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, plus leading international experts, who will convene to discuss a range of critical issues and the best courses of action to secure our energy future. With energy at the center of our nation’s most pressing global challenges — national security, long-term economic competitiveness, and climate change — Berkeley is leading the way to finding solutions.

*Pathways to a Sustainable Energy Future* on *October 1–2, 2010,* will bring together the finest, most passionate minds dedicated to issues related to energy supply, demand, policy, and the environment. Among our keynote speakers are: *Ralph Cicerone*, President of the National Academy of Sciences and world leading expert on atmospheric chemistry; Arun Majumdar, the first director of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency–Energy, whose wide-ranging expertise includes energy-efficient technology and innovations in materials science; Chris Field, co-chair of an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group and widely regarded for his research in ecosystem responses to global climate change; and Art Rosenfeld, long-time Commissioner to the California Energy Commission, and one of the most influential figures in helping the state of California achieve greater energy efficiency.

In addition to the keynote speakers, 16 distinguished presenters from UC Berkeley and Berkeley Lab will present their own cutting-edge research and innovations. They include: Paul Alivisatos, director of Berkeley Lab and an authority on applying nanoscience to solar energy; Severin Borenstein, co-director of the Energy Institute at Haas and a leading
voice in economic policies for reducing greenhouse gases; Inez Fung, faculty director of the Berkeley Institute of the Environment and a specialist in predicting the effects of carbon dioxide levels on the planet and atmosphere; and Harrison Fraker, a Berkeley professor of architecture pursuing the design of entirely resource-self-sufficient, transit-oriented neighborhoods of 100,000 people in China.

This symposium pools together the vast expertise and transformational impact of two of the world’s foremost research institutions. It is free, but registration is required. I have enclosed a flier, and you may visit or e-mail for information and to register. There will be a lottery held for students, so please be sure to register before 5PM on September 15th .

I hope you will join me to learn about and become engaged with crucial efforts to realizing an affordable, endurable supply of global energy.
