EARTH WEEK: Clean Bin Project Film Screening
Thursday, April 24, 2014 18:00 – 20:30 | 3-270 | sp-environment-chair [at] mit.edu
The Clean Bin Project is a fun, indie documentary about waste and consumption. In this multi-award winning, festival favorite, find out how a Canadian couple challenged themselves to live completely zero-waste for a whole year. Come and enjoy some snacks and get inspired! The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with MIT community members who have also challenged themselves to live zero-waste. This film screening is a part of a series of Earth Week events at MIT. For the full schedule, check out our website at https://mit.edu/earthday
EARTH WEEK: “Finding Enough” – An Exploratory Lunchtime Seminar
Thursday, April 24, 2014 12:00 – 13:30 | 4-105 | sp-environment-chair [at] mit.edu
Join us in this thought-provoking lunch-time workshop to explore why we want what we want and where our own personal fears of "not enough" come from. Each of us have issues, objects, or services that we "never have enough" of: boots, chocolate, hugs, money, work, success, or travel. Without judgment on what we each are seeking, we'll dig into why we want these things, and what might be ways to look beyond the good or service to other ways that we could meet those same needs.

April showers bring May flowers, and that’s why you should join us for an enjoyable day at the arboretum on May 3rd, from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM. We will go in two groups: one group will take the T and the other group will go by bike. After a leisurely hike through the arboretum, we will have lunch at a nearby restaurant. Lunch will be subsidized and snacks will be provided for Sidney-Pacific residents, and guests are welcome to join at their expense.
