#CentreGreenWeek is well underway, each day providing new opportunities to celebrate sustainability and environmental responsibility on campus.

Wednesday, April 23

Sponsored by Sodexo, tonight’s Sustainability Dinner from 5 to 8 p.m. in Cowan will offer fare prepared with local foods. Get a taste of the region and the chance to learn about the farmers that help put food on your plate, as well as getting more information about Centre’s great new composting program.

Tonight from 8:30 to 10 p.m., enjoy Movie on the Lawn feature Erin Brockovich. Julia Roberts plays the title character in this true story of an ordinary woman who took on a multi-billion dollar corporation for illegally dumping toxic wastes and poisoning the residents of a small California town.

Can’t make time for other activities? The Why so GREEN? Photo petition is an easy way to get involved. The Centre Environmental Association will be taking photos of students each day this week from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Campus Center lobby, asking them to pose with a statement of what campus sustainability means to them. These photos will be shown on Centre Social Media and will be displayed for all students to see on the projector in Cowan.

Tickets and t-shirt sales continue all week for the twenty aprils concert on Friday, April 25. Partnering with Good News International, twenty aprils is a student-led benefit concert to celebrate the power and endurance of Rwandans following the genocide — twenty years after. From ticket sales and gifts, its goal is to raise no less than $10,000 by Friday to help support survivors.

Tickets and shirts may be purchased for $10 each (or $15 for a package) in the Campus Center, Monday and Wednesday from 5 – 7 p.m., and Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. The concert, at 9 p.m. on West Walnut Street, will feature music by dj auzey, with hundreds of pounds of powder paint and food by Captain Franks Hotdog Emporium (15% of sales to benefit cause).
