Weekly Sustainability Workshops and Films Return to Ohio University


As winter's drear landscape creeps on toward spring, we hold our collective breath in anticipation of better times. There's no need to wait though! Engage that slumbering optimism now as the Alden Library Sustainability Group at Ohio University is bringing back its popular Consciousness film series with newly added workshops!

Now showing every Wednesday at noon and again at 5:30 every week in the Friends of the Libraries Room on the third floor of Alden Library for the next several weeks!

On January 20th you can learn how to take your impact into your own hands with Ron Young's presentation Reducing Home Energy Use.

The following week on January 27th we will look at Peak Oil and investigate the changing landscape during the End of Suburbia.

February 3rd finds us learning about Transition Towns and how we can use it build locally resilient networks to help fight against Climate Change and Peak Oil in an impacting presentation by Benjamin Shender.

On February 10th, The Story of Stuff takes us on a whirlwind tour of where our stuff comes from and where it goes.

From compost to clothes drying, the Ohio University Office of Sustainability Eco-Reps will show you how to save the planet from the comfort of your room in our final workshop of the quarter Living Green in an OU Dorm on February 17th.

Ending the Consciousness series for this quarter, Buyer Be Fair will talk about the benefits and opportunities represented by the fair trade movement on February 24th.

Bring something to eat, bring a friend, and bring your questions for our discussion to follow!

Every Wednesday from January 13th to February 24th at Noon and 5:30 in the Friends of the Libraries Room on the third floor of Alden Library.
