In preparation for 2014 Sustainability Week, the Sustainability Office and Environmental Leadership Office hosted the Kickoff Rally in the MU Student Center from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday.
The rally was held to inform students about the upcoming events that were going to take place during Sustainability Week, which include Recycle Mountain and a showing of the documentary “Gasland Part 2.”
There was also a raffle held for gift cards and bicycles.
Mizzou Food Coalition Coordinator Jessica Hill said that students have taken notice of their efforts.
“We’re getting a lot of publicity being out here and showing that there are a lot of students at Mizzou that support sustainability and want to see our students take more actions to improving the sustainability on campus,” she said. “We want to get more students involved in things that are already going on with sustainability on campus and (make) people aware it’s an important issue to students here.”
