CURC Annual Workshop: Community Connections – Sept. 30th

To say that everything is connected may sound trite but in every aspect of our work in waste reduction, sustainability, environmental justice and our campus communities it is almost impossible to accomplish anything in a vacuum. 

CURC’s 2021 Workshop theme is Community Connections because we cannot accomplish our goals of reducing waste, increasing diversion and protecting the health of our community and our environment without making the necessary connections to engage, understand, and collaborate.
