October is Campus Sustainability Month

Weill Cornell Medicine is currently celebrating its first Campus Sustainability Month! This is a yearly international celebration of sustainability in higher education, held every October by many universities and college campuses. Our first event was the screening of several Story of Stuff documentaries, which had great attendance and sparked conversations on how to reduce waste and energy consumption.

The WCM Sustainability Leadership Council has organized events and raffles throughout October to rethink our impact on the environment and find ways to reduce waste and conserve energy in our campus. See the poster above for information on our current calendar of events, and check our website and Facebook page often for updates.
