Another successful #DrivewaySoirée ft. #BarnegatBay oysters! After Hurricane Sandy ravaged the area, scientists went to work cultivating oysters on the Jersey Shore. Why? #oysters filter through nitrogen pollution as they eat attracting all kinds of marine life back to their homes. They also soften the blow of storm surge to protect our shorelines. Thank you to @billionoyster for all this cool intel at the @unitednations #greenfair! 🌊

Our campus information session this Thursday (Sept 20) at 6PM EST will address all your queries about our curriculum, funding and the application process. And did we mention that it's free and open to all!⠀

One of the merits of living in a global city. The diversity (cognitive and identity )of individuals and groups that you meet and interact with is immense.
Tonight at a lecture " Social Value Investing: The Success of Cross-Sector Partnerships"  hosted by Howard W. Buffett ( grandson of Warren Buffett) and William B. Eimicke and organized by The Earth Institute  and School of International and Public Affairs of Columbia University .

One of our projects this semester is with the Javits Center’s green roof. 6.75 acres full of plants, birds, bees, and bats. This should be fun 🙂

#JeffreyDavidSachs an #economist, #publicpolicyanalyst, and #director of the #EARTHInstitute at #ColumbiaUniversity, where he holds the title of #UniversityProfessor, the #highestrank Columbia bestows on its #phenomenon faculty. He is known as one of the #worldsleadingexperts on #economicdevelopment and the #fightagainstpoverty 😑😒 To #alleviate the effects of neocolonialism, American economist #JeffreySachs recommended that the E N T I R E #Africandebt (ca. 200 BILLION U.S. dollars) be dismissed, and recommended that #Africannations “not repay” the #WorldBank and the #InternationalMonetaryFund (#IMF) 🧐🤨🤔🤬🌍

We welcome our brand new Fall 2018 cohort to @columbia as they kick off their journey towards becoming sustainability leaders! Tag us in your photos of the best moments of your first week here, use #SUMAFall18 and we’ll repost the best ones!

I support sustainable fashion👸🏿👸🏻
*
Did you know fashion accounts for 10% of environmental pollution? It is the second largest polluting industry in the world and it highly abuses women’s rights. I know it sucks, it’s like how sugar and candy are bad for us.🤦🏽‍♂
*
Please allow me to introduce @orsoladecastro , visionary, legend, and maker of what we love so much to be good for us instead of polluting: sustainable fashion😊
*
She started From Somewhere - @gatherandsee - a revolutionary label that was the first to address the issue of pre-consumer waste and reproducibility in recycling for the fashion industry. From Somewhere - @gatherandsee - collaborations include upcycled collections for @insidejigsaw, @kappa_official, @fandfclothing and @speedo
*
She also co founded Estethica, the sustainable fashion area @londonfashionweek
*
In 2011, Orsola together with partner @filipporicci founds Reclaim To Wear, an organization that brings designers, producers and distributors to create upcycled capsule collections. Reclaim To Wear collaborations include @csm_news @hongkongdesigninstitute as well as Reclaim To Wear by @topshop, a bestselling capsule collection which launched in June 2012 and is still ongoing.💃🏼
*
Please note the following so we can understand how important it is to support sustainable fashion:
Consumers are buying more, and tossing more. Americans throw away an average of 16.22 million tons of clothing per year. This accounts for 822% more than in the 1960’s.
The apparel industry employs approximately 60 million people worldwide, but many of these jobs can be unsafe or pay unfair low wages.
With these numbers it is important that we all contribute by purchasing sustainable clothing.
And the world is responding:
In 2017 there was a 100% increase of @Google search for sustainable fashion.
More people want to know #whomademyclothes To date there are over 310k posts on social media using this hashtag
The Fashion Revolution is being heard as 37% of brands are now publishing supplier lists.
And 18% of brands publish their processing facilities.

Who doesn’t love a good field trip? Professor Michael Puma took our cohort on a field visit for his Hydrology course recently. The course introduces students to the science that encompasses the occurrence, distribution, movement, and properties of Earth’s water and its relationship with people and the environment.

Victory!! 😂✌️So the official testing laboratory for construction bricks at the Polytechnic University in Blantyre has confirmed that our #soil stabilized #bricks (with just 5% cement content!) are actually more than 3 times stronger than the minimum standard (for dry compressive strength) and abt 25% denser than the standard for #compressed #stabilized #earth #blocks... Well done hardworking block makers of the ecoLODGy Team and well done team of #earthinstitute and #aureka in #Auroville for developing the great #Auram3000 brick press!
