No Impact Week

Written by

You don't want Earth to look like this, do you?

No Impact Week starts today! This event from Green Umbrella aims to create a consciousness about the impact of everything we do on our environment. A paradox to mull over: making an impact by not impacting.

Contemplate how your life as a Columbia student affects the world around you…playing frisbee on the lawn, eating at John Jay dining hall, staying up late to study, playing music on Low Steps. Then, because CC and Lit Hum prepared you for this and you probably just can’t help yourself, critique the concept of trying not to make an impact on the planet and assess its merits.

This Earth Week program is a collaboration among CU Green Umbrella and Columbia students and faculty from different clubs, schools and departments, and with the No Impact Project.  Register for No Impact Week events here.

    I love the Earth so much because it gives us LIFE and FOOD and ENERGY and everything we know and love!!

    BUT we are RUINING IT with our energy policies, wastefulness, and general disregard for the ecosystems that we are a part of, and the environment around us.

    Hope it not lost.....activists around the world are trying to help CHANGE this situation for the better, and sustain this planet so that future generations can enjoy its beauty.

    JOIN THE MOVEMENT. ITS NOT TOO LATE. THE WORLD NEEDS YOU! TAKE THE TIME TO GIVE BACK TO THE BEAUTIFUL PLANET THAT YOU LIFE ON.

    Pretty much sums up the efficacy of the planned events.
