Green Chalenge

Forwarded Info for NEIU Green Community

Can you meet the Campus Green Challenge's?


Here are two great opportunities for NEIU students to get involved in greening our campus:
 
1) In the national "USEPA Campus RainWorks Challenge" competition, students design green infrastructure to help deal with storm water on their own campus. NEIU student teams competed in the first two challenges, and now we're getting ready to join the third!
 
Dr. Robyn Flakne's GES 323 class (Green Infrastructure Planning and Management) will form the nucleus of the team, but anybody else can join. GES, Earth Science, Art, Business--students from any major are eligible to participate. The more interdisciplinary, the better!
 
The winners earn money--*plus* funding to support green infrastructure on their campuses!  Please contact Dr. Laura Sanders at L-Sanders@neiu.edu if you would like to participate.
 
2) COMPOST HAPPENS, and it will start happening on our campus starting in October. If you want to help build and maintain compost bins for the NEIU Community Garden "NEIU Ground", please contact Dr. Laura Sanders at L-Sanders@neiu.edu .
 
Have a great, green semester!
