Earth month is underway


Ohio University's annual Earth Month celebration, hosted by the Office of Sustainability, is underway.

Throughout the month of April, a variety of workshops, speakers, films and events will take place in an effort to shape new attitudes and raise awareness about energy use and its environmental impacts. Events are open to the public, and all are free, with the exception of the 30-Mile Meal Discovery Day lunch workshop on April 25.

Earth Month's first week of events set the scene for the rest of April.

The month opened with Sustainable Smoothies after the Athens Marathon and a Science Café focused on turtles. On Wednesday, Alden Library, the Ohio University Common Experience Project (CEP) and the Ohio University Office of Sustainability hosted a screening of "Connected," an autobiography on love, death and technology, followed by a discussion on the film's themes. The Lancaster campus pitched in Friday with their screening of "The Vanishing of the Bees," and a workshop on beekeeping.
