It's been a great week of SustainableUW Festival events, and we've loved seeing everyone get involved with campus sustainability. The festival is winding down, but it's not over yet.

Come celebrate with us this afternoon at the Bullitt Center - the greenest commercial building in the world - for the opening reception of the "Campus as a Living Lab" exhibit, co-hosted by UW Sustainability and the UW Center for Integrated Design. Explore the presentations on a variety of innovative campus sustainability projects while enjoying drink (beer and cider provided by Two Beers Brewing and the Seattle Cider Company) and food. The reception will be 4-6 p.m., with remarks from some of the people involved at 4:30 p.m. The Bullitt Center is on Capitol Hill, at 1501 E. Madison Street.

Before heading out for the reception, you can help the Society for Ecological Restoration remove invasive blackberry plants around an amphibian corridor project in the Union Bay Natural Area from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Snacks and work tools will be provided - come prepared with clothes suitable for rainy weather. You can also volunteer with the UW Farm at the Center for Urban Horticulture from 12 to 5 p.m.

Former president of University of Tokyo Hiroshi Komiyama will host “Beyond the Limits to Growth: New Ideas for Sustainability from Japan” at 11:30 a.m. in Thomson 317.
