Penn State Berks Sustainability Fest
On November 11th Penn State Berks Sustainability Team hosted the ‘Sustainability Fest: We R! The 6R’s!’. The purpose of this meeting was to discuss waste overconsumption and actions to tackle these issues. There were learning stations lead by students, faculty, staff and community organizations. These organizations include Invisible Berks, Reading 100, and Reading Public Works. The benefit of higher education institutions having open events such as these, which include local organizations, is that it creates a space for a community to discuss sustainable ideas. This communication leads to a community practicing sustainable action at a higher rate. Penn State Berks is a fantastic example of a university putting sustainability at the forefront!
