PLNU celebrated its ninth annual Creation Care Week Sept. 10-15. The sustainability program, headed by Alexandria Bennett, collaborates with the sustainability studies minor each year to dedicate a week to environmental education and awareness and how those play a role our Christian faith.
This year’s Creation Care Week featured a sustainability fair; Bike the Jam, where off-campus students, faculty, and staff could bike (or walk) to campus for free coffee and breakfast; and a sustainability networking event, where students could meet professionals and learn about numerous organizations and leaders working in sustainability. Students also joined thousands of Californians in a Sunset Cliffs beach cleanup day.
Ben Lowe, author of Green Revolution, also spoke about Creation Care and how students can get involved with sustainability in chapel and at Brewed Awakening, put on by PLNU’s Center for Justice and Reconciliation.
