Light Step, Right Step

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks
The Light Step, Right Step festival will happen in State College for the first time this September and is a celebration of sustainability efforts, community groups and businesses in the Centre Region.  The Borough is hoping to make this more than just an 'expo' type of event by including demonstrations by community and student groups, music and food, activites for children and even screen a relatively new documentary called Carbon Nation.  They have started inviting community groups to participate in the exhibit portion of the event and are now starting to collect ideas for groups that could do interactive portions and local performers that might be interested in playing for a portion of the day.  If you want to check out the information for the event, we've put together a website and facebook for the festival: http://www.lightsteprightstep.org/. And if you have any ideas for musicians or other groups that might be interested in participating, they would love to hear them.

awards.jpgEach week recyclables accumulate near the side entrance of the Student Health Center for pickup. The Student Health Center Green Team decided to use this weekly event as an opportunity to educate visitors and staff about the sustainbility efforts taking place in the building. Green Paws certificates from departments that have completed certification are also displayed here to acknowledge staff successes and motivate other departments.
