Annual event promotes sustainable and environmentally conscious living

The University of Mississippi community can enjoy the spring weather and learn about sustainable living during the Office of Sustainability‘s annual Green Week, which starts Monday, April 18 and runs through April 24, 2022. 

Since it was started in 2009, Green Week hosts a series of events and demonstrations each year to teach about and celebrate sustainability with the university and Oxford communities.

“We hope to inspire students, faculty, staff and community members to forge new commitments to a more resource-conscious lifestyle and strengthen the presence of sustainability at the University of Mississippi and in the LOU community,” said Kathryn Kidd, project manager at the Office of Sustainability.

Green Week will feature events that touch on different aspects of sustainability that appeal to a wide range of interests, such as planting native species, recycling, eating locally and environmental conservation.

“I hope that those who attend our Green Week events will walk away with a better understanding of sustainability initiatives in our community, why they matter and how they can contribute,” Kidd said.
