A brief description of the event(s):

NC State hosts several sustainability related events each year. All events can be found here at http://sustainability.ncsu.edu/events. Two examples of recurring events are below.

Earth Day:
For the past ten years NC State has celebrated Earth Day with an event in April. Most recently, the event has included up to 85 campus departments, student groups and local businesses. NC State Earth Day strives to promote, inform and empower our campus community towards a more sustainable future. Exhibits, activities, and entertainment, teach and inform attendees about various environmental issues, and promote environmentally friendly practices and lifestyles.

Empower Film Series:
Each spring, since 2007, NC State has presented a free environmentally-themed film series in the Campus Cinema. The succession of films became known as the Empower Film Series in 2011 and the themes presented were expanded to include all aspects of the three-legged stool of sustainability: society, economy, environment.
