Virtually hosted by College & University Recycling Coalition



Date & Time

September 30, 2021, 12:00 pm4:00 pm


CURC’s annual workshop focuses on what connections we can cultivate to create sustainable schools and a just and zero waste future. UMBC's sustainability coordinator, Kayla Hickman, will be speaking about collaborative JEDI initiatives between UMBC and other Baltimore area institutions of Higher Education.  

About this event

This program will be a series of presentations on different ways we can collaborate with colleagues, our campus population and community organizations.

In this workshop, we will focus on four different themes:

1.   Connecting our waste programs with the needs and experiences of our campuses’ BIPOC and marginalized communities

2.   Connecting with our city/local government on waste reduction and diversion

3.   Connecting with community groups working on the health and Environmental Justice impacts of waste

4.   Connect with our regional colleagues for mutual sharing of strategies and resources

We are very excited to take this time to embrace the idea of regional “meet-ups” around the country! The last hour of the workshop will involve breakout sessions by region to discuss opportunities for collaboration.”


Registration is required and the cost is $25; however, we do not want anyone to be excluded from this workshop due to their inability to pay. Please email curc3r@gmail.com if you need financial assistance. 


The virtual workshop will be conducted via Zoom. A Zoom link will be sent to all registered participants closer to the workshop date.
