7th Annual Sustainability Expo

SUSTExpologo-webCome celebrate Earth Day at the University of New Mexico’s 7th Annual Sustainability Expo. The event will be held on Cornell Mall — just east of the Student Union Building — on Tuesday, April 21st from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm. Everyone is invited to join in the Earth Day-inspired festivities.

The Expo offers an opportunity to interact with sustainability-minded organizations at a variety of engaging displays and activities. There will be a growers’ market, food trucks, live entertainment, an arts & crafts fair, bicycle auction, and much more! Learn about sustainable initiatives on campus and in the community, grab lunch, connect with potential employers, meet local farmers, and enjoy the fun, energetic atmosphere.

The Expo is organized by UNM Sustainability Studies Program students in the Growers’ Market Practicum class who are passionate about educating campus and community members about sustainability. In addition, numerous campus organizations are responsible for coordinating and supporting the Expo, including the ASUNM Arts and Crafts Studio, the UNM Office of Sustainability, the Associated Students of UNM, and UNM Parking and Transportation Services. In the spirit of sustainability, the 7th Annual Sustainability Expo  will be a zero waste event; we encourage your participation and support.

Can’t wait for this year’s Lobo Growers’ Market? Check out video clips from local television stations, KASA and The Mtn, to see their coverage of previous years’ events.

    The only problem with this is that it doesn’t happen nearly often enough!
