Although fall quarter is coming to a close, there are still plenty of UW Sustainability events to go to this week.
Start your afternoon with the Farm Lunch informal seminar, where students, staff and faculty explore issues concerning urban agriculture. The topic of discussion: how carbon and climate change relates to food. Seminar will be held in Gould 435 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:20 p.m.
Whether it’s conserving water or donating unused food, the University of Washington Club is always looking for new innovative ways to stay sustainable.
“We try to align ourselves with the University’s commitment to environmental stewardship,” said Jenelle Ebisu, the UW Club’s general manager. “We’re always trying to support the environment as much as we can.”

A tourist, a camera and a good eye may just be the trick to saving the endangered Galapagos penguins.
Tourists and the photographs they take can provide valuable information about the health of the Galapagos penguins and their surrounding environment. From a single shot, UW researchers can determine whether a penguin is breeding, molting or migrating, as well as the bird's age, health status and other information.
The SustainableUW Festival has come to an end, with two big chances to cheer on the Huskies, in athletics and sustainability!
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.
The SustainableUW Festival kicks off day four with volunteering opportunities and a wide variety of seminars and discussions to choose from, along with a careers event and poster session at Odegaard Library in the afternoon.
Day three of the SustainableUW Festival kicks off with cookies, muffins, cupcakes, and plenty of coffee! Pick up some delicious Halloween treats in the lobby of Fishery Sciences and support the Student Environmental Affairs Society, an on-campus group dedicated to actively addressing emerging costal issues. The Halloween bake sale will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
