Annual Sustainability Champion Celebration/ Virtual Happy Hour!  April 25th, 7-8:30pm

Our Flagship event is the Annual Campus Sustainability Champion Celebration!  This tremendous event recognizes students, faculty, administrators, and staff (as well as student and non-student organizations) of Pennsylvania colleges and universities who have made meaningful contributions toward environmental sustainability on their campus, in their community, or in society at large. This year we have 16 champions from 9 colleges or universities! (There are actually more than that, since some awardees are part of an organization!)

We learned during COVID that this event works extremely well as a Virtual Event, providing our winners with the greatest opportunity to attend and to provide brief remarks about their project or initiativeAllegheny College has provided a great example of how to make the event even more fun by hosting a virtual happy hour at their school for winners, sponsors and other interested parties.  Here's the connection information...

Our Keynote speaker for this year’s event is English Professor John MacNeill Miller from one of our member schools, Allegheny College!  John is an Environmental Humanitarian, and he is described by colleagues as “having a wonderful presence, and he tells a great story.”   Among many other things, John will elaborate on the role of the humanities in addressing environmental concerns. 

John has authored many publications and papers, including:

  • Shakespeare’s Starlings:  Literary History and Fictions of Invasiveness
  • Mischaracterizing the Environment:  Hardy, Darwin and the Art of Ecological Storytelling
  • The Ecological Plot:  A Brief History of Multispecies Storytelling, from Malthus to Middlemarch

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you at this great PERC event on April 25!
