The Washington Higher Education Sustainability Coalition (WAHESC) is hosting "Sustainability at home" on May 12, 11 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. For many of us, this past year has meant our home has also served as our space for work or learning. How has this affected your personal sustainability actions? Hear from students and staff across the state of Washington about their personal sustainability actions, how the pandemic has impacted them, and what you can do to continue being a sustainability champion while "at home" or socially distanced!

The Washington & Oregon Higher Education Sustainability Conference (WOHESC) is now accepting proposals for the next conference, to be held March 2-4, 2022. The conference theme is "The Path Forward to an Equitable and Regenerative Economy." The conference program will look at fair, equitable and sustainable economies, and rebuilding with a clean, green careers-driven approach.
Kick off Spring with a green thumb! From April 22-29, stop by the HUB's North Entrance to pick up planting materials you can use to build your own garden at home. Starter materials and instructions will be provided, but you will need to upcycle or resuse a few materials to give your plant a new home.
