The week will be comprised of a wide variety of events and opportunities for the campus community to make a greater connection with our campus’ built and natural habitats.

Monday, April 15th at 10 a.m.: Webster University’s Sustainability Week will kick off with an arts and crafts activity for all located in the UC Presentation room, Campus Activities and the Sustainability Office will provide planters, paint supplies, plants and soil for you to make a DIY a planter in your own style to take home. Snack will be provided as well!

Tuesday, April 16th at 11 a.m.: The Webster University Facilities staff will be partnering with Perennial STL on the University Center Patio to provide a fair full of opportunities for attendees to bring items in need of repair – clothing, small appliances and furniture, electronics, bicycles – to transform people into fixers instead of consumers and exchange ideas and skills among our community.

For more information and the events scheduled for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday below.

Wednesday, April 17th: This will be a day for highlighting local environmental and social justice opportunities in the area. With students graduating and looking for summer work and internships during the spring, the campus community is invited to a panel from area professional in public service work and an opportunity expo with local organizations such as St. Louis Zoo, International Institute, Missouri Sierra Club, MCISA, Great Rivers Environmental Law Center, and more. The panel will take place from 10-11 a.m. in Sunnen Lounge, with the opportunity fair following the panel.

Thursday, April 18, 10 a.m.: Join us for a clean-up and honeysuckle hack at the Natural Area behind the Garden Park Plaza. The Webster Groundskeeping crew will provide all of the necessary supplies – but we encourage bringing your own loper, water, and clothes you can get dirty in!

Friday, April 19th: The Sustainability Office will close the educational and fun filled week with a bike ride and brown-bag picnic! Riders will convene on the University Patio at 12 p.m. and ride together to Blackburn park for some sunshine. Bicycle and helmet rentals from the Webster University Bike Share program will be FREE all day!
