Spend the 40th Earth Day & Earth Night With The New School

The New School Sustainability Advisory Committee, spearheaded by some wonderful student leaders, has put together an Earth Day event in our beautiful courtyard!

22nd April, THIS Thursday 11am-3pm @ Lang Courtyard
66 West 12th Street

Thursday will feature a SWAP 'TIL YOU DROP, brainchild of our rockstar: Rita Luppino. Bring us your clean, unwanted clothes and swap 'em for something else! Your donation is your ticket to swap. Checkout student eco-vendors making upcycled clothing and jewelry and support them. Learn about the Advisory Committee on Investor Responsibility, S.T.E.M., the Solar Decathlon, Food Service at TNS and the state of the environmental movement today. All leftover items will be donated to charity. Carbon Rally allows everyone to track how much CO2 was saved by swapping instead of buying something new. Check this out! Students from The New School can join the Clothing Swap Challenge on Carbon Rally.com for a fun and interactive way to get involved with climate change solutions. There will be a computer set up so everyone who swaps can join The New School team to calculate our footprint. All monetary donations will go toward our new Green Fund :) Checkout local, essential artists and the status of public parks in NYC. ARTIST POWER!

Media Studies student activists will work with us to infuse interactive video, including rolling loops of Kilowatt Ours and other informative clips.

Ever wonder what makes New York City bagels and microbrews the best around? It's the NYC tap water!

From 6-8PM, ReNew School's Helene Wasserman is spearheading WATER AWARENESS NIGHT! FREE BAGELS! SIX POINT BREWING COMPANY!
2 West 13th Lobby orientation Room

Come find out what makes our tap water so precious, why it is threatened, and how we can preserve it. Watch videos and hear talks on water.

Both bagels and beer made in New York are even more delicious thanks to New York City tap water, which comes from a protected watershed. Special thanks to Nick Krebs for handling logistics. Come one, come all!
