Green GW is a "for the students, by the students" organization on the George Washington University campus. Our mission is to unite the student body, administration, and faculty alike to create a more environmentally friendly and green campus while simultaneously increasing awareness of environmental issues.
Ken Zweibel, Director of the GW Solar Institute, will speak at the 2010 Peak Oil Conference. The event will be held in Washington, DC October 7-9. Ken Zweibel will speak on the last day of the conference on “The Laws of Energy, Technology and Scale.”
GW student groups and academic departments/classes are encouraged to contact Liz Longenecker (email@example.com) to organize group discounts or volunteer at the conference in exchange for admission.
Green GW has some great plans in store for the upcoming year, and we want you to be a part of them! Attend our first meeting— Bell Hall at 8:15 PM to meet fellow students interested in environmental issues and making our campus more sustainable. At the meeting, we will be forming committees to take on some of our maor initiatives this year.
We’re excited to introduce Frank Sesno, the director of the School of Media and Public Affairs and creator of Planet Forward, a social network dedicated to energy, climate and sustainability issues, and Fuzz Hogan, the executive coordinator for Planet Forward. Check out their website for innovative green ideas at http://planetforward.org/ or see their facebook at http://www.facebook.com/planetforward.org. If you are interested in becoming a Green GW member, you will be able to pay dues at the end of our meeting. Dues are $5 or $10 with a Green GW t-shirt (sustainability is sexy, what what). We hope to see you there!
