Environment Today: Green Design and Garbage (Waste)

March 30 - April 1, 2012

All sessions in Porter Hall 100 (Gregg Hall)

The "Environment Today" is an annual mini-course that brings students together over a weekend to discuss environmental issues affecting our planet. The theme for the spring 2012 ENVIRONMENT TODAY course is GREEN DESIGN AND GARBAGE (WASTE). Where these two topics are seemingly disparate, this course will serve to seek and define the intersection.

This program has been made possible thanks to generous support from the Office of the Vice Provost for Education, the Steinbrenner Institute for Environmental Education and Research, and Heinz College.

For more information, please visit the weekend-today website.
