The IU South Bend Sustainability Club will be holding their first meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 13.
The meeting will be held at 4pm, though a location has not yet been determined.
All students are able and encouraged to attend the meeting. Those in attendance will enjoy food and conversation with other attendees while planning events for the year. Officers are also planned to be elected.
According to Krista Bailey, Director of IU South Bend’s Center for a Sustainable Future, sustainable Halloween crafts will also be made.
Students planning to attend should consider bringing ideas for events and projects for the year.
“What could or should the Sustainability Club do on campus or in the community?” Bailey asked.
An overview of previous events will be shared at the meeting to spark imaginations. However, new ideas for possible events are welcomed and highly encouraged. Ideas can include anything such as crafts, campaigns, service projects, and trips.
The IU South Bend Center for a Sustainable Future’s goal is to help students switch to environmentally friendly, or sustainable, ways of living. There is no step too small to make a difference.
There are no requirements for students interested in joining the Sustainability Club, though they should have an interest in learning what the club is about.
According to Bailey, students should have an interest in learning about sustainability, and they should plan to be “participating in sustainability initiatives on campus and in the community.”
Students can watch Daily Titan or the Center for a Sustainable Future’s social media pages for meeting updates and to be notified when a meeting location is determined.
