In conjunction with Earth Day, Hobart and William Smith has organized a week of activities that will enhance the Colleges’ sustainability efforts and environmental impact on campus.

“Our goal is to help campus members realize how a small change in lifestyle can make a big difference to the environment,” says Sustainability Manager Michael Amadori. “It’s not just about recycling. Students will have opportunities to repair their bikes and swap clothes. Plus we will have a filmmaker screening his documentary about oil pipeline protests and a guest speaker discussing sustainable traveling abroad.”
