Holy Thrift – An Art Show!

This weekend, see second-hand items turned into art at the Grain Belt Bottling House.  Yes, artwork can have a sustainable emphasis – without using twigs, bark and pine cones.  Although, there’s nothing wrong with that either!  Mary-Laurel True (director of community engagement) will be debuting her work as well.  Come show your support, view some creative works and enjoy the tasty treats.  This event is open to everyone!

Net Impact Conference

If you’re interested in learning about sustainable business, you may want to attend the Net Impact Conference.  Net Impact will be coming to the Twin Cities November 6th-8th.

But what is Net Impact?  It is a non-profit organization that provides resources to empower emerging leaders for social change and building a more sustainable future.  This should be a great networking opportunity for those looking to connect with like-minded people and discover what today’s business leaders are doing to become more sustainable.  Check out their site to register and learn more about the various workshops, panels, programs and numerous other learning opportunities for students and professionals.

Minnesota Community Solar

Don’t miss this month’s meeting on Wednesday, October 8th in OGC 100 at 12 noon.  Minnesota Community Solar will be presenting solar options on campus.  Tell us what you think about Augsburg going solar and which option you think is best.  All faculty, students and staff are encouraged to view the presentation and join the conversation.  We’d love to hear your feedback.

Bike Fix-It Station

See our feature in the Echo!  On September 9th we sponsored the annual Transportation Fair and revealed our brand new (and very high tech) bike fix-it station.  This is just one of the many great things we have planned this year.  Keep watching that Augsburg calendar and checking our blog for the latest environmental news and events on and around campus!
