Sustainability Month Becomes Green Days

 Sustainability Month Becomes Green Days

01/21/2014 

SUNY Cortland is looking for individuals and groups across campus to participate in a three-week event aimed at showing the world that Cortland has one of the most environmentally conscious campuses in the nation.

The event, formerly known as Sustainability Month, has been renamed “Green Days” in hopes of conveying a sense of fun and celebration aimed at engaging all segments of the Cortland community.

This year, SUNY Cortland’s annual celebration of renewable energy, recycling, environmental stewardship and all kinds of sustainable practices, will be held Monday, April 7, to Friday, April 25.

“Sustainability month has been a very successful event, but we want to expand involvement throughout the campus and into the community,” said Katherine Ingraham, chair of the group’s organizing committee and an assistant director of operations in Residence Life and Housing. “We’re dealing with very serious issues, but we believe working together to find solutions should be a lot of fun.”

Ingraham’s committee is looking for creative and exciting events, presentations and activities. Anything from recycling competitions to scientific lectures will be considered. Organizers are creating a webpage to help coordinate Green Days ideas.

Any student, student organization, faculty member, community activist  — anyone — with an idea for Green Days should contact Ingraham at katherine.ingraham@cortland.edu.
