It’s EARTH WEEK! From April 19th to 25th Lehigh University is hosting Earth Week! From guest speakers to the Earth Day Fair to Sustainability workshops students get the opportunity to learn about Earth’s natural beauty as well as how conserve and preserve that beauty. The schedule of events can be found at: http://sustainability.lehigh.edu/calendar-events.
Lehigh University has been making a sustainable effort all around campus. The Bethlehem Farmer’s Market is held weekly when crops are in season therefore allowing the students to buy locally grown food while supporting our local community. Students also have the opportunity to participate in the Community Gardens, Energy Conservation Month, RecycleMania competition, SustainabLEHIGH to live in sustainable housing and to take classes in LEED certified buildings. There are many groups and clubs on campus that are also trying to expand the initiative by starting to compost and taking little steps to sustainability.
