Next week, October 19th through 23rd will be NU’s first ever Sustainability Week. There will be all sorts of informative and entertaining programs throughout the week. You can see the full event list here. Highlights include a screening of the film Blue Gold: World Water Wars, a performance by the musical group Recycled Percussion (who recently took third place on America’s Got Talent), a green business networking event, and a panel presentation about how you can reduce toxic exposures in your daily life. It looks like this is going to be a very interesting, exciting week!
If you’re looking for something fun (and free!) to do this weekend, go check out Boston GreenFest 2009 at City Hall Plaza, right outside the Government Center T stop. This event runs from 10 AM to 10 PM August 21st and 22nd with a kickoff concert tonight from 5 to 10. Over the next two days there will be screenings of the films “The Greening of Southie”, “Fresh”, “Out of Balance: ExxonMobil’s Impact on Climate Change”, and “Flow: The Film”. There will be speakers and workshops covering everything from green cars to eco-games to the Charles River. You can also walk around and check out the art gallery, exhibits and listen to some live music. This looks like a really fun event with something for everyone. I’m planning to attend on Saturday so maybe I’ll see you there.
