The New School Earth Week Festival 2012 - Student Sustainability Festival

The New School is holding its first annual Earth Week Festival this April, coordinated by the Office for Sustainability. This cross-disciplinary collaboration of administrative and academic departments and student groups will raise awareness about sustainability issues, strengthen our campus community, and link The New School with millions across the country in the 42nd annual Earth Day celebration.

  Celebrate Earth Day by enjoying Recycled Runway, a sustainable wear fashion show produced by fashion students at Parsons The New School for Design, an electro-acoustic chamber ensemble from The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, and various student projects.

Art and design work addressing a wide range of sustainability issues and solutions will be exhibited throughout the afternoon.
