The fourth annual Commons Unplugged environmental awareness week, from Sunday, Oct. 15, to Saturday, Oct. 21, will celebrate sustainability, natural-resource conservation and energy conservation through various events focusing on Vanderbilt’s first-year student population. These events are presented by The Martha Rivers Ingram Commons in partnership with the Sustainability and Environmental Management Office (SEMO), the School for Science and Math at Vanderbilt, and Students Promoting Environmental Awareness and Responsibility (SPEAR).
October is Campus Sustainability Month.
Throughout the week of Commons Unplugged, first-year students will compete in a residence hall energy-conservation contest to earn points in the yearlong competition for the Commons Cup. The week will include three events open to the entire Vanderbilt community, and which first-year students will earn Commons Cup points for attending: the Green Forum, the Green Fair and the Green Activity.
All events are free and open to the Vanderbilt community.
If your organization would like to participate in the Green Fair, contact the Sustainability and Environmental Management Office, (615) 322-9022. If you have questions about Commons Unplugged, contact Benjamin C. Fields.
