Our staff always has something to teach us, and Earth Month is no exception. Our Friday afternoon beer hour had a new twist last week as we enjoyed a series of five-minute presentations on a variety of Earth Month topics while enjoying refreshments and snacks. We learned about: water use, urban farms, COP 21, sustainable culture in Germany, green roofs, the environmental cost of online shopping, and Arrowstreet’s entry for a sustainable art competition.
Our Fiver’s not only allow our staff to practice their presentation (and time management) skills, but they also allow us to share information in a studio-wide setting. We’ll be continuing to share what we’ve been doing this Earth Month, and look forward to seeing how the information we’ve shared makes its way into the projects we work on, and the way we live.
