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.
Tuesday gets started early at the SustainableUW Festival.
At 8:30 a.m. in Architecture 147, Nicole Faghin of Washington Sea Grant will talk on "Reducing the Impact of Shoreline Development in Puget Sound" as part of the Environmental Science and Resource Management Seminar: Water in the Pacific Northwest.
It's the opening day of the SustainableUW Festival!

Although Halloween is just around the corner, UW Sustainability has been meticulously organizing their own series of events – without the "tricks," and pumpkins guts.
Want to know how UW Athletics is working toward sustainability? For the long weekend, here's a video of the Husky Highlight keynote address during the SustainableUW Festival detailing the sustainability efforts of the athletic department. Karen Baebler, assistant athletic director for sport operations, takes us through some of the green features of the new Husky Stadium and other facilities, discusses why these actions are important to UW Athletics and brings in a few special guests.

On Wednesday, October 22nd, a group of six speakers from across the University of Washington came together to discuss sustainability, especially as it relates to their personal research and projects, as part of the SustainableUW Festival. Comprised of three different UW schools (College of the Environment, Foster School of Business, and the School of Public Health), the panel focused on identifying and addressing the barriers to solving the largest issues currently affecting sustainability.
