University of Washington
Sustainability efforts and events happen across the University of Washington every day, by students, faculty, and staff who are passionate about our future. The SustainableUW Festival celebrates those contributions and highlights opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to get involved. The SustainableUW Festival is designed to showcase the full scope of sustainability efforts across UW - events include campus lectures and seminars, volunteer opportunities and other events throughout the UW community.
The festival is just a slice of the overall sustainability efforts at UW. We hope the festival provides an introduction to some of the events touching on sustainability which happen every week throughout the year.
Full event details will be coming soon.
