'Bridge Day Invitation
'Bridge Day – Connecting community and environment
Information letter of the coordination initiative
of the University of Lethbridge Be-Aware Club
Our community has a growing network of environmentally conscious people. The University of Lethbridge, through its Environmental Sciences program, is educating students on the importance of the environment in our everyday lives. These students feel the need to actively engage their peers in creating a more sustainable city. To do this, bridges must be formed between community and environment, both within the university and beyond. By bringing together a diversity of clubs, groups and organizations, ‘Bridge Day is designed to work towards this goal.
On March 15th, 2006, we would like to invite you to participate in our day of awareness and celebration of the local environment. Join us in the Atrium of University Hall, from 9am to 3pm, for an all-day event complete with informative presentations, activities, speeches, and discussion. As the environmental awareness club on campus, Be-Aware believes that each person or organization has a connection with the environment, and we challenge them to find it, define it, and tell us about it. This can be achieved through, but is not limited to, information booths, exhibits, educational sessions, or on-line blogging.
We have also invited the active community of student-run clubs to promote their interests and activities while exploring the impacts these have on the environment. In addition, we have extended invitation to members of the University faculty, community groups, NGOs, environmentally conscious businesses, the City of Lethbridge, and Alberta Environment to take part in ‘Bridge Day. Not only will their participation provide wonderful learning opportunities for community members, it will exhibit the variety of ways in which individuals can interact with and enjoy the natural world.
We hope this event will address environmental issues from various points of view, raising levels of discussion. We would love to have you join us in achieving this goal. Members of our club would be more than happy to meet with you to help determine how you could best contribute to this event, and please feel free to contact us with any questions.
Thanks for your consideration, and we hope to hear from you soon!
