Join us for our monthly EcoReps Lunch & Learn workshop featuring a free vegetarian lunch and locals making a difference in sustainability! On November 17th, we'll hear from two speakers:
1. Tonya Summerlin from Bellarmine’s Food Recovery Network on the work they are doing to get uneaten food onto the plates of Louisville's needy.
2. Patrick Hohman is the founder and instructor at Bellarmine University’s Condominium & Home Owner Association Study Project. He’s been the volunteer president of his own condo association for more than 25 years. He wrote the book Condos, Townhomes and Home Owner Associations: How to make your investment safer. One in five Americans live in this form of housing. Patrick asks: How do you persuade large chunks of the hard-to-reach residential sector to adopt more sustainable practices? By convincing local condo and HOA boards of directors, of the sustainability benefits for their “small city”.
The Sustainability Council’s EcoReps program is designed to move students, faculty & staff beyond talk to action for a more sustainable UofL! We provide basic training & resources, service opportunities, and leadership positions as a point-person & peer-to-peer advocate for sustainability. This fall, we'll continue our series of in-person workshops each month on third Fridays at noon at rotating locations around campus. Join us for lunch and bring your reusable plate, utensils, and cup to minimize waste! All are welcome. More info on EcoReps website.
