The Lesley Environmental Club concentrates its actions into the areas of increasing environmental awareness on world and local issues; actively taking a stand trying to inhibit these issues; and getting others interested and involved inside and outside of the Lesley Campus.
Our short-term goals include hosting informational events that actively engage participants in fun activities (such as organic and local shopping, recycling activities, and how to create various things from more earth friendly substances) that serve to educate the community and raise awareness of the club on campus.
Our long-term goals include setting up opportunities to go to conferences and talks on environmental issues and activism, joining in events with larger environmental groups and movements in the greater Boston area, and bringing knowledgeable speakers onto campus to speak about various environmental issues and solutions to the Lesley community.
During club meetings members can suggest or express interest in various future activities and later receive e-mails on how these activities are progressing and how they can be involved. During meetings, members will be encouraged to bring articles, artwork, books, etc. that have meaning to them within an environmental context in order to expand group members' personal environmental knowledge and passion and also serve to strengthen us as a group and cultivate new ideas.
