Sustainable Webster: What We Can Do Today
Enhancing our sustainability as a community — in other words, adjusting our actions to help preserve the environment that we rely on for our personal, social and economic welfare — isn’t just for environmental organizations or sustainability professionals. Each of us can have an impact. Come learn about specific innovations in pest control, education, plastic waste reduction, and urban gardening that you may be able to promote or implement: Webster’s Sustainability Commission and Green Space Advisory Commission are hosting four more monthly Eco-Ed talks starting in August.
All lectures will take place in 160 Browning Hall (Interdisciplinary Science Building) on Webster University’s campus (https://www.webster.edu/campus-map.php). Parking is available in the garage at 568 Garden Avenue.
