A week of activities to bring environmental awareness to students at Peninsula College is the focus of the Associated Student Council’s Earth Week 2018.
Under the leadership of ASC Director of Environmental Affairs Kina Azmi, events will begin on Tuesday, April 17, and run through Monday, April 23.
Tuesday will feature a Ted-x talk, “More Ocean Less Plastic,” by Lia Colabello. It will be introduced by the ASC and will show at 11:30 am in the PUB. Light refreshments will be served.
On Wednesday, students can swing by the PUB between 11:30 am and 1:00 pm to take a quick quiz to learn about their carbon footprint. Those who take the quiz will be treated to free pizza.
On Thursday, students are encouraged to leave their cars at home. It’s “Alternative Transportation Day,” when students who walk, ride a bike, take the bus, or car pool, can take a selfie of their mode of transportation and stop by the ASC office where they can show that selfie to earn a snack.
The always popular cake walk is planned for Friday at 11:30 am in the PUB, where students who participate will have a chance to win environmentally-friendly prizes.
Peninsula students are encouraged to participate in community Earth Day events over the weekend. One popular option is the Washington Coast Savers Beach Clean-up. Students can register at http://www.coastsavers.org/index.php/volunteer/ for the event.
Earth Week 2018 will conclude with a clean-up effort at the Peninsula College Arboretum, starting at 1:30 pm on Monday, April 23. Students are invited to join staff and faculty at the east side of campus to spruce up the arboretum. The ASC plans to provide pizza for the workers.
