Get Ready for Sustainability Week 2019

During the week of April 15-19, the Webster University Sustainability Coalition and Sustainability Office are partnering to host the third annual, campus-wide Sustainability Week.

Sustainability Week provides ample opportunities to get educated on and think critically about the most prevalent issues being faced by our natural world.

The week will be comprised of a wide variety of events and opportunities for the campus community to make a greater connection with our campus’ built and natural habitats.

To RSVP for any of the events below, visit Involved@Webster. For questions or more information, visit the Webster Sustainability website or email Kelsey Wingo.

Repair Fair

Back by popular demand, the Repair Fair will be held on the University Center Patio at 11 a.m. Repair Fairs create a space for the campus community to fix up their worn and broken household items, as well as learn skills to take maintain clothing, small electronics, bicycles and more.

It's an excellent opportunity to learn the value of being a fixer and exchange ideas and skills among our community.
