Meeting Minutes From Feb 2

In yesterday’s meeting we discussed the four events/campaigns we will focus on this semester. We will be splitting into four committees to plan for these events; please think about which one you want to join:
- Tap water campaign (ongoing) – educating student body on bottled water
- World Water Day (March 22)
- Earth Day (April 2)
- Powershift (April 15-18 in Washington D.C.) – a youth climate movement summit we would like to attend

We also discussed some community service/field trip ideas for the semester including:
- snow shoeing
- art show in Feb (eco art)
- Audubon society
- Charles River cleanup (in spring)
- Earthworks urban orchids (in spring)

In addition, we are considering showing one or more of these water related films:
- Flow
- One Water
- Tapped
