For the first time, UofL’s Sustainability Week activities extended to the HSC campus.

Dr. Justin Mog kicked things off with a workshop focused on the challenges of guiding a large institution away from a business-as-usual mindset and toward a thoughtful balance of environmental, social and economic stewardship.

The HSC Green Team coordinated a pumpkin decorating event and bike repair station on the HSC Plaza, as well as two showings of the critically acclaimed documentary, “Paris to Pittsburgh–The Climate for Change is Now.”  Two other films were featured during the week: “Forks over Knives” and “Current Revolution.”

The decorated pumpkins were placed on display at the Gray Street Farmers Market.

Falls City Community Bike Works sponsored a bike repair and training station on the Plaza.  Falls City Community Bike Works is a non-profit community bike shop in Louisville with a goal of making bicycling more affordable and widespread.
