Earth Day Comes to Stanford
I received this email - I've long been skeptical of environmental movements that use words such as "sustainable" (or read economists such as Malthus)
Hello -
I'm writing on behalf of Students for a Sustainable Stanford to
invite your group to participate in the annual Spring Earth Day Fair
in White Plaza. The date of the fair will be April 22nd. We hope you
can join the other groups with a table, to share what you've been
working on, educate people, recruit new members to your group, and
just have a good time. The weather should be beautiful!
This year we're gearing up for a very big Earth Week,
focusing on personal empowerment during the election year. We will be
joined on Earth Week by such exciting guests as US congressman Pete
McCloskey (co-founder of Earth Day) and legendary folk singer Joan
Baez (tentatively scheduled). On Thursday, we anticipate a
celebratory day of learning in white plaza, including :

-student environmental groups
-student cultural groups (performances)
-student political groups
-administrative departments (e.i transportation, water...)
-academic departments

Here's the info:

Earth Day Fair
Thursday, April 22
White Plaza
12:00 - 2:00 pm

Keep in mind that ProFro's will be arriving on this day, so it's also
a good way to recruit new members.
The tentative schedule for all of the Earth Week activities follows this email.

Please Respond to this email ASAP to let me know if you would like a
table in White Plaza. Also, spread the word and forward this
information to any other groups that might be interested and relevant.

Thanks a bunch!
