Hosting climate solutions events is a great way to get support for your cause and build connections among your campus community. Whether you host an informal meeting, seminar, lecture, workshop or movie night, events will sustain your momentum and make your commitment to climate solutions real.
You may consider organizing new events or weaving a climate theme into the events you already have on your calendar. Use campus tours as an opportunity to highlight your sustainability commitment, and boost recycling and composting efforts at sporting and other campus events. Make an effort to have a net zero waste event (where 90 percent or more of post-consumer materials are diverted from landfills). Holding an event is also a great way to launch and announce your Solution Generation commitment and get others excited about joining your efforts.
