Take charge of the unsustainable things in your life and community! These free events include film screenings, presentations from experts, and conversations that help us make our world better, together.
From late summer through late spring in Dane County, you can attend and participate in multiple Green Tuesdays and Green Thursdays events each month. Learn and share ways to live more sustainably. In April, Edgewood College screens films during Earth Week. In summer, join us for a field trip or two.
