April 9, 2013 under Events

The youth-led non profit Teens Turning Green is on the move with its Conscious College Road Tour, and will visit the University of Delaware on Thursday, April 11.

At UD, there will be an information station on The Green from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and a discussion and planning session from 6-9 p.m.

The University stop is sponsored by the UD Horticulture Club and other groups.

The road tour will stop at 15 universities across the country through mid-May. The two-day campus stops seek to inform, raise awareness, and inspire conscious living. It features the information station, a collection of eco, ethical essential items and the town hall meeting.

“The University of Delaware’s commitment to greening the campus and its community has grown considerably in recent years,” said Natalie Stevenson, a UD senior. “Between the Sustainability Task Force, the annual Campus Sustainability Day, Students for the Environment and Earth Week, the University’s sustainability efforts in Newark have shown that we’re not just blue and gold, but going green. A partnership with Teens Turning Green can help continue our momentum and convince even more members of the community to adopt a conscious lifestyle.”
