Webster University Sustainability & Butterfly Energy Works presents Collaboration in Our Community: A Summer Lunch & Learn Series

Join Webster University Sustainability and Butterfly Energy Works Wednesdays from 12pm-1pm this summer to learn about strategies and solutions being created and used right here in our local community to improve environmental, social and economic sustainability. These events are FREE and box lunches will be provided. After the final session on August 10th, attendees will be entered into a drawing to win a Rolling Ridge Nursery gift card – receiving an entry for each session attended.

All sessions are held in East Academic Building 202 (except for the first, which will be in Room 138) located at 545 Garden Ave, Webster Groves, MO 63119. Please RSVP to help provide accurate attendance numbers. Parking is available in Garden Park Plaza parking garage.

Topics include local water issues and big rivers with a presentation by Alicia Lloyd of the Missouri Coalition for the Environment, the political fight for a greener world with Missouri Sierra Club’s John Hickey, the influence and impact of teaching sustainability to elementary and middle school students with the College School and many more.

Webster University Sustainability strives to improve campus and community sustainability through education, outreach, engagement, and sustainable operations. The drive to become a more sustainable campus was a priority for President Stroble upon her arrival in 2009. Since then the university community has undertaken significant steps to reduce our impact on the environment, improve campus engagement for sustainability, and support long-term fiscal and community health.

Butterfly Energy Works is dedicated to creating energy efficiencies that will change the way you think, work – and live. Whether you are looking for energy conservation opportunities in your home or for your business, we can guide you toward a full measure of health and monetary savings. Because of our years of experience with the technologies and philosophies of green building, we see opportunities that others don’t.
