Organized by the Office of Sustainability and University Housing, Sustain-a-Bash introduces new residents, especially first-years, to sustainability through a celebration of campus and community resources.
Sustain-a-Bash shifted again in 2021 to a weeklong hybrid event with both virtual and in-person activities, including tabling by orgs and groups, a spikeball tournament, a raffle, and locally-sourced snacks from Dining & Culinary Services.
Presented virtually over the course of a week, Sustain-a-Bash 2020 focused on the topics of social sustainability, sustainability 101, food, water and energy, and conscious consumerism.
Twenty groups and orgs, from Slow Food UW to the Lakeshore Nature Preserve, invited students to learn and interact during Sustain-a-Bash 2019.
From seed bombs to blender bikes, Badgers braved the cold for a great afternoon of activities.
"Sustain-A-Bash gives a well-rounded, holistic look at sustainability. It showcases a variety of ways that students can get involved on campus and by volunteering in the greater Madison community."
