Earth Day at Lehman College

Earth Day at Lehman College, Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Come join the Lehman College community for the College’s annual Earth Day celebration! The theme for Earth Day 2014 is Green Cities.

Planned Events (3:00 – 6:00 pm):

 

Green Art Contest

Students, faculty and staff are invited to enter works of art made from materials that would have been otherwise recycled, and compete for prizes! See full contest rules and entry information. Potential directions of Green Art are virtually unlimited; plug the term “Green Art” or “recycled art” (or even “art from garbage”) into a search engine and be inspired!

 

Screening of the documentary, No Impact Man

in November, 2006, New Yorker Colin Beavan launched a year-long project in which he, his wife Michelle, his two-year-old daughter and his four-year-old dog went off the grid and attempted to live in the middle of New York City with as little environmental impact as possible:  “zero carbon . . . also zero waste in the ground, zero pollution in the air, zero resources sucked from the earth, zero toxins in the water”. Laura Gabbert and Justin Schein’s film provides both a front-row seat into the experiment that became a national fascination and media sensation, and a behind-the-scenes look at the marital challenges that result from Colin and Michelle’s radical lifestyle change. View the official trailer for No Impact man.
