EarthWorks is a multi-disciplinary team
made up of student interns, faculty and staff, who are all sustainability

group has brought in guest speakers, held video screenings, organized student

This year, the EarthWorks team embraced 3 new student organizers (Kaylie, Natalia and Christine) working on sustainability initiatives on campus. All three organizers are working together under the umbrella of Cap U Works and many of the campus projects will be better served by this broad base collective. Find our more information on their page!
In addition to attending monthly EarthWorks/CapUWorks team meetings and building community engagement to include more participants, these students act as catalysts who bring energy, support for the team, and the vision to challenge the series to grow into a rallying point of knowledge and action. They seek to engage other students with the campus and external community. The organizers are also encouraged to network with environmental organizations, arts based organizations, performance artists, policy makers, and leaders and experts in sustainable change-making to bring a richness of views and opinions to the series. Over the course of the next semester, this group will continue to plan and deliver events that educate and inspire.
