NYU Hillel Launches No-Impact Week

Mazal tov to the ever-fabulous Becca Oshins for organizing this important program. It is so exciting to see active, passionate students using the resources of the established Jewish institutions to make an impact. (Well…okay in this case, through no impact…)

Footprint Forward, NYU No-Impact Week 2007
Presented by the Bronfman Center Selma Ruben Distinguished Lecture Serie
NYU Footprint Forward Week (November 4-12) is about making an active environmental difference in a livable way. Through presentations, workshops, a guidebook, and an online community, we hope to inspire over 500 students and community members at NYU and in the surrounding neighborhood to live as close to a zero net impact lifestyle as possible for the duration of the week!
While low-impact living necessitates some changes in lifestyle, Footprint Forward is ultimately about doing more, not less. It means making choices that are within the boundaries of our professional, academic and personal needs that help sustain our school, our city, and our world – as well as ourselves.
Footprint Forward begins on November 4th at 2:00PM at NYU’s Bronfman Center with a private workshop with “No Impact Man” Colin Beavan,, and culminates with a community-wide lecture in the Great Hall at Cooper Union on November 12th at 7:15PM. Throughout the week there will be positive impact events, lectures, volunteer opportunities, social opportunities and more. All are welcome to participate to whatever degree they are comfortable.
Rebecca Oshins and Adam Brock, student co-chairs of Footprint Forward, are dedicated to making a real impact. As Rebecca says, “Footprint Forward is a chance for each of us to make a significant positive impact in our community and in our lives. We are so excited to see the high level of participation and commitment from across the university.”
