On September 8th (Thursday) at noon, join our very own Tina Woolston, Director of the Tufts Office of Sustainability, as she discusses the sustainability efforts here at Tufts, resources available to students and opportunities to get involved. If you’ve ever wondered about installing solar on campus or where the food from the dining halls goes, this is the perfect place to learn and ask questions about your ideas for innovation on campus!

Tina has worked in the Office of Sustainability since 2007, initially as Project Coordinator and then as its Director. She created the Eco-Ambassador program for staff and faculty and an Ex-college course on sustainability in action. She works closely with Tufts Recycles, Tufts Institute for the Environment, Purchasing, Dining Services, and others on sustainability initiatives across the university.

Tina also co-founded MaynardCAN!, a local non-profit that organizes and promotes sustainability initiatives in the city of Maynard, MA. Prior to Tufts, she worked for the Earthwatch Institute as their Program Manager for Sustainability. She received her Master of Science from Cornell University.

Visit Environmental Studies Department website for more information on the Lunch & Learn Program, which occurs every Thursday. Lunch & Learns began in the Spring of 2011 to create opportunities for environmentally-minded undergraduate students, faculty, and interested staff to communicate and interact on environmental issues.
