St. Lawrence University has developed a very cool new Sustainability Program this spring — a semester-long program in which students live and learn together off campus, to tackle environmental issues. Students live together in a rural setting in New York, studying a full course load, while also growing and cooking their own food. This cooperative living gives them a great backdrop for understanding issues of sustainability in such a region, which they then have to translate into an urban setting during a two week intensive trip to Boston. This portion of the program helps the students to understand environmental issues in a grander scope, and helps widen their perspective on environmental problems – and potential solutions – that come with city living. So, it was very fitting for Chive: Sustainable Event Design and Catering to cater their celebratory night, zero-waste. These students had some amazing speeches to share – and some super tasty, locally-sourced food to eat.
