BU sponsors sustainability festival, Carbon Day
It’s a good day to be green.
The University is sponsoring two events today designed to promote eco-friendly lifestyles and environmental education: the sustainability@BU Festival, at the George Sherman Union Plaza, and Carbon Day, in Copley Square.
The second annual sustainability@BU Festival, running from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., is an opportunity for student clubs, University programs, and private companies to showcase their green activities and causes.
“The point of the festival is to get students engaged and connected with one another,” says University sustainability director Dennis Carlberg, whose office organized the festival. “Incoming students can learn about what’s going on and get involved.”
