Big Red Goes Green in Sustainuary

Big Red is going green for Sustainuary, the School’s celebration from January 21-February 25 which highlights sustainability efforts and encourages Lawrentians to take care of the planet all year long.

Lawrentians will learn from three sustainability experts. Dallas Hetherington ’80, a Presenter for C-Change Conversations, which works to educate people about the science and risks of climate change and by framing it not as a political issue, but as a human one. Hetherington will discuss “Climate Change Risks and Opportunities for Action” during an all-School meeting on January 21. On February 9, “Climate Intelligence: AI and Technology in Action” will be addressed by Stacey Gifford (Head of IBM’s “Future of Climate Initiative”) and Bonnie Lee (Founding member of Microsoft’s AI for Earth program).

Lawrentians can try their hands at a geocaching night hike – and conclude their journey with s’mores at a bonfire on January 22, then enjoy skating at the School ice rink. Sophia Sachar ’22 will lead Sunday morning Taoist Nature Walks from January 23-February 20 and history teacher Annie Wilcox is taking students on an owl-watching bird walk in Mercer Meadows County Park on February 16. Romance will be in the air as Lawrentians dine by candlelight at the annual Valentine’s Day Dinner in the Dark.

Last but certainly not least will be the Trashion Show during the February 15 all-School meeting. Lawrenceville Houses will compete to see which can create the most fashionable outfit using only items recycled from the trash.

While all of these events are exclusively for current Lawrenceville students, all are invited to follow the fun on Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, and YouTube.
