      Sustainability Week is just around the corner. The week will feature
      speakers, discussion panels, a concert, and of course Earth Day! We
      hope you can attend the events that interest you most. Please help us
      spread the word by announcing these events to your classes and
      telling your friends. Below I have included a few highlights and the
      full schedule. Check out http://www.sjsusustainabilityweek.org for
      more info and the latest updates.

      Sustainability Week aims to educate and motivate students and members
      of the community to live a more sustainable lifestyle. This event,
      held at San Jose State University, offers a unique opportunity to
      learn about fair trade, sweatshop labor, sustainable food systems,
      appropriate technology, and global climate change.

      Presented by SMART Project (Sustainable Markets and Responsible
      Trade) and The Environmental Resource Center (ERC).
