Upcoming UC Sustainability Events - Nov. 17th-30th!

Thursday, November 17: Community Bike Ride 6pm @ Bike Kitchen
                Meet us at the Bike Kitchen for an easy street ride to Northside where we will meet up with the weekly Slow Ride.  This ride lasts approximately two hours and takes a steady pace on a new route each week.

November 20: UC Garden Fall Clean Up Dig Day 10am @ backyard of the UC Early Learning Center, 3310 Ruther Avenue
                Join us for a final dig day in the UC Garden for the season.  We will be preparing the garden for winter, planting cover crops, weeding, cleaning and organizing.  Don’t miss this last chance for some gardening fun!

November 18 – 20: Conference – 2011 Campus Community Partnerships for Sustainability @ NKU Student Center
                This conference will bring together 250 sustainability-minded students, faculty, and staff from public and private universities from Kentucky and the Tri-State area.  More information can be found at http://www.greencampusky.org/.  Speakers include Bill McKibben and Lisa Crawford. 

Monday, November 21: Film Series – Zeitgeist: Moving Forward 7pm @ MainStreet Cinema
                This feature length documentary presents a case for a needed transition out of the current socioeconomic monetary paradigm.  The subject matter will transcend the issues of cultural relativism and traditional ideology and move to relate the core, empirical ‘life ground’ attributes of human and social survival, extrapolating those immutable natural laws into a new sustainable social paradigm called a ‘Resource-Based Economy.’

Wednesday, November 30: Climate 101 Lecture Series: Pedal Power 2pm @ MainStreet Cinema
                During this presentation, members from three bicycling advocacy groups in Cincinnati will discuss the work of their organizations, the cycling movement in Cincinnati, and how you can get involved!  Mel McVay, transportation planner for the City of Cincinnati; Frank Henson, Queen City Bike; and Ellie Jones, MoBo Bicycle Cooperative will be presenting.
